The University was first known as the Branch Normal School.

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

Welsh: derivative of Evan , from Efan, Ifan, medieval forms of Ieuan (from Latin Johannes, the source of English John), dating from c. 1500, with the post-medieval patronymic suffix -s. Welsh Sion was a separate borrowing of English John, and Evan (Ieuan) and Sion developed as independent names.
