Naming Contest

Help us select a new name for the University area located at Nile/Ennis Joslin.

The term “momentum” describes a time in TAMU-CC’s history when the campus began growing rapidly as we transitioned from an upper division institution to the four-year university we are today. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has developed our own culture and personality, and we want a name that better reflects the Islander life now. What does it mean to be a Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islander? What things come to mind that are a part of your experience? Who are we as Islanders?

You have a chance to submit an entry to rename the university area located at Nile/Ennis Joslin. The contest is open to all currently enrolled TAMU-CC students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Submissions will be accepted starting 8 a.m. on March 20, 2023, through 11:59 p.m. on April 10, 2023.
