Letter to the Editor: “DUC” a constant at university

Erik C. Thomas

After being at Western Kentucky University over several years in several capacities ways there was one thing that remained a constant.
Downing University Center,  also known as DUC. During orientation as a student I learned that “the DUC” was the place to be. Then with all the changes, renovations and restructuring that DUC would eventually become the one place that you could always come to. I’m sure most people will see it as a few people getting hung up on a name,  but to those that remember in 1922 the state renamed the institution Western Kentucky State Normal School and Teachers College. A name can mean quite a bit and could help preserve the heritage that this school has so proudly fought for in the past. DUC FOREVER,  Go Hilltoppers!
