They’ve put together a Facebook campaign to keep their ridiculous board of trustees from renaming one of their campuses after His Excellency Mitch Maidique, FIU’s money-grubbing, football-mad, just-retired president.

Cast your eye over UD’s Maidique posts over the last few years to get a sense of this absurd character, and then consider signing the students’ petition. My signature is Number 447.

The students worry about the cost of renaming buildings and all at a time of austerity. Which is fine. It’s a fine worry. But they should also worry about rewarding a president for having done a bad job, and about permanently embarrassing an ambitious school by plastering this guy’s image and moniker all over the place.
