List for potential nicknames for North Dakota down to five

8 Comments

North Dakota will no longer be known simply as UND.

The university’s nicknaming committee has officially removed that as an option, leaving the school with five potential nicknames to be voted on by the general public: Fighting Hawks, Nodaks, North Stars, Roughriders and Sundogs.

The process for that vote has not yet been determined, according to the Grand Forks Herald.

Since December of 2012, the university’s athletic teams have not had a nickname, simply going by North Dakota or UND. The school was previously known as the Fighting Sioux.
