(Pennsylvania, AP) - Beaver College's decision to change its much-maligned name to Arcadia University has apparently boosted enrollment. The school changed its name a year ago to end years of abuse from the likes of David Letterman and "Saturday Night Live." Derogatory jokes often referred to the animal, "Leave it to Beaver" and the female anatomy. Arcadia has received deposits for 522 incoming freshmen and expects nearly all of them to show up when classes start. That number is up 12 percent from last fall. Applications increased 33 percent. Previously, most students came from Pennsylvania and surrounding states. This fall the freshman class comes from 48 states, 13 more than last year. "Inadvertently, the fact that our own name was the butt of many jokes meant that (people) across the country and outside the country heard the fact that we were changing our name," President Bette Landman said Friday. "That was unexpected advertising."
