University of Arkansas rids itself of ISIS

Posted By on Tue, Jan 12, 2016 at 7:09 AM

The Traveler newspaper at the University of Arkansas reports that the Fayetteville campus has completed a planned name change in a computerized student information service whose name was an acronym shared by a notorious group.

Officials changed the Integrated Student Information System’s name to UAConnect today, according to a press release.

“While the name has changed, the look, functionality and information contained in your Student Center remains the same,” according to the press release.

UAConnect allows students to log in with their UARK Central Login instead of a separate account, according to the press release.

This is another change from ISIS, according to a press release. Previously, when students logged in to ISIS, they had to do so with an ISIS account, which was separate from their UARK account.

No one need confuse Fayetteville with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria any longer.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
