Need an alphabetical listing[edit]

Suppose you had only the logo of a college giving its initials, say GC, and a picture of its mascot, say a panther. If you had an alphabetical listing, you could quickly find all colleges with the initials G.C., then go find the one with a panther for a mascot.

Further, my collegiate dictionary lists American colleges alphabetically. If it is good for Merriam Webster, it ought to be good for Wikipedia.CountMacula (talk) 10:38, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
