PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Getting legislative approval may have been the easiest part of Utah Valley State College's name change.

Starting in 2008 the school will be known as Utah Valley University. That means about 100,000 e-mail addresses and 60,000 Web pages need to be updated to reflect the change.

The school's chief information officer, Ray Walker, says even he is surprised by the size of the project. And he says he has to wait for the new logo and images to come out before pages can be redesigned.

The project should start in December and the most important things will be changed by a year from then.
