there is no need for abbrevatiated names. the names listed should follow the article names. some are colleges. some are universities, etc. there is no space constraint in wikipedia like in a paper encyclopedia. full name (as used in article) is more complete.--18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:29, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
