Due to the recent influx of Justin Bieber mania and pressure from the newly renamed JustinBieber Department, the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh might possibly officially change its school song to the Bieber smash hit, “One Time” as of April 1, 2010.

The change is one of many that the UW Oshkosh JustinBieber Department is pushing to capitalize on the popularity of 16-year-old Bieber.

“I heard Chancellor Wells talking, and he said, ‘As a university we try to keep with trends in order to attract as many students as possible,’” said Chelsey Orlikowski, a JustinBieber student. She added that he might have said, “We feel this is a great opportunity to really connect with students and ensure that we stay relevant in a rapidly changing cultural climate.”

Orlikowski snapped the following photograph of Chancellor Wells with Bieber, which is currently being investigated for authenticity:


University Journalism Department Catches Bieber Fever in Revolutionary Name Switch

1 04 2010

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Journalism Department announces it will be changing its name to “JustinBieber Department” to reflect the teen-sensation’s increasing social media presence and consistent trending nature on the popular microblogging site, Twitter, as of April 1, 2010.

Current students are encouraged to refer to the former “J-Dept” as the “JB-Dept.” The change will also impact spring commencement. Soon-to-be grads will now officially major in “JustinBieber,” with their respective emphases remaining the same.

 “Although some people may call us crazy, we fervently believe that Justin Bieber is revolutionizing Journalism, the media and the world as we know it,” said Mike Cowling, department chair. “…I really hope he retweets this article.”

JustinBieber department professors will be making drastic changes in their curriculum in response to the change. Each course is set to begin with an “ode to Bieber,” which may include students saying their favorite aspect of Bieber, a 2-minute reflection on his accomplishments, a group Tweet-about-Bieber session or a class sing-a-long to any of his timeless classics.

“I for one am pumped about this change,” said Kari Robinson, a senior in the JustinBieber department. “I just can’t get enough of him! I sing his music everywhere! Oh golly!”
