OREM, Utah (AP) -- A Utah Valley University student is hoping to name a room at the school library after television's king of "truthiness."

Sophomore Nate Bagley says Stephen Colbert, host of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" has played an important role in getting students active in politics.

Bagley, a communications major, is trying to collect $5,000 in donations -- the minimum amount needed for room naming rights.

University spokesman Chris Taylor says if Bagley raises the cash, the name will have to be approved by the university's board of trustees.

If it goes through, Bagley says he'd love to have Colbert come to the school mark the occasion.
