For three months, citizens labored to complete the first building of the school before the next school year. After two months, school officials informed the school administrators that the school didn’t comply with the new state law and they need to build a new building on land deeded to the state. The University was first known as the Branch Normal School. A few years later, the School became part of the school of the Utah State Agriculture College and was called the branch Agriculture College. Since becoming a College, it changed its name three more times. The last being Southern Utah University, after it was given university status in 1991.

Name Meaning

Scandinavian, German, and English: topographic name for someone who lived by a grove, Old Norse lundr; the word was adopted into northern dialects of Middle English and also into Anglo-Norman French. There are a number of places in England named with this word, as for example Lund in Lancashire, East Yorkshire, and North Yorkshire, Lunt in Merseyside, and Lound in Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, and Suffolk, and the surname may derive from any of these. The Swedish surname is probably more usually ornamental. When surnames became obligatory in Sweden in the 19th century, this was one of the most popular among the many terms denoting features of the natural landscape which were adopted as surnames, usually compounded with some other such term.
