Tisch to Change Name to “Franco”

NEW YORK, NY—The Tisch School of the Arts announced Tuesday that it would be changing its name to Franco effective immediately. Tisch Dean, Kevin Mulholland, announced the change in front of hundreds of students, alumni and faculty saying “it took less than 127 Hours for us to make this decision.” He went on to say “you must be Knocked Up on Pineapple Express if you don’t like this decision. He reiterated several times that this decision is in no way connected to notable alumnus, Oscar nominated actor James Franco. Mulholland said “this name change will soon be imprinted onto people’s minds and Franco will as synonymous with NYU as Annapolis is to The U.S Naval Academy. Success will be to NYU like a Green Hornet is to Spider-Man.”
