LUMS is one of the most prestigious institutes of Pakistan and the name speaks for itself! Yesterday the Vice Chancellor of LUMS sent an email to the whole community that LUMS was changing its name to LUMS University which now makes for LUMSU as a short form.
Ever since the name LUMSU was revealed, it has been a top trend on Twitter and the internet just can’t handle it!
world war 3 trending, Australia on fire, and lums changed its name to lumsu, 2020 served us alot in just some days wow#LUMSU

People were worried about who’s going to take them seriously:
Imagine saying I'm a LUMS graduate now.
"I'm from LUMSU"

You can tell how good a restaurant is by the number of michelin stars it has. You can tell how good a university is by the number of times 'university' is written in its name, ergo #LUMSU

People were living for the LUMSU jokes:

It was already a borderline case for "LUMS", but #LUMSU is too much, resonates much with what we Punjabis do with names. Fazal to Fazlu, Aisha to Ashu

Some thought this is what you get when you order LUMS from Daraz 😂
