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.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
