HOBBS, NEW MEXICO - Is a possible name change in the future for the College of the Southwest?

College President Gary Dill says the idea of renaming the private four-year college in Hobbs has been the topic of discussions among students and faculty.

In fact, it was a class project by two students last fall.

The College's Board of Trustees appointed a task force to consider the issue.

The panel has recommended the trustees consider changing College to University in the name.

The board will vote March 4.

If approved, the name would be changed this fall.
