Starting this fall, University of Michigan-Dearborn students will officially be able to call themselves Wolverines.
Formerly branded as the Wolves, the school announced this month that it will make the change to align itself with Ann Arbor athletics.
According to campus newspaper The Michigan Journal, a survey conducted by the university found that 87 percent of respondents felt that the change to Wolverines would be beneficial to the school's athletics program, while 77 percent said they already think of themselves as Wolverines.
Efforts to rebrand UM-Dearborn are under way, and coincide with the other, bigger change at the Dearborn college coming up this fall: student housing.
That project is expected to be completed in time for the fall 2013 semester as well.
