Nobody cares about the SCORE name change

Ainsley Howard
The student services site, SCORE, is changing its name. Is it really necessary? Do people honestly care?

 

SCORE is the self-service portal students use to navigate through all things GHC. The SCORE name change has been brewing for some time now with the reasoning being it hasn’t changed since the early 1990s.

Students will get the opportunity to vote on the new name which will be implemented in 2024, but many students are not aware of this change, nor do they care.

The self-service banner is used for registration, to view schedules, balances and a host of other student resources. The name change will be noticeable as it has been the same for over 20 years.

“I was unaware of the name change and it does not have an effect on me as long as I can still access the same information,” Natalie Hosey, a health science major at the Cartersville campus said.

Students are not concerned about the name change but more about the changes that the new self-service banner will come with.

“I’m more curious about if they are going to inform us of what it’ll be, when and if we will get to it the same way?” Daniella Heming, a health science major at the Cartersville campus said.

I do not believe the delivery of the self-service banner should change, and with the workload of courses and many of us also juggling jobs, the SCORE name change is the least of our concerns.

Embarking on a new semester is challenging enough, navigating a new website is not something I would look forward to.

If the potential name change had never been introduced, I would never have given any thought to the name of SCORE.

Nobody honestly cares about the name change, as long as the change does not make the website more difficult to navigate.
