I think they use the nickname to save ink and space.  "Valpo" is on most of their jerseys/uniforms.  Valparaiso would have to be written in like 10 point font!  A good friend of mine went their for undergrad.

It may be a regional thing.  It was an invitation to some law open house thing they're having, so they may have only sent it to people within a reasonable distance from their school.  Unlike W&L, who invited Californians to their open house :)

Valpo is even their website (not valparaiso).  I guess they were afraid that no one would visit because they wouldn't be able to spell it.

Same here.  When I got the invitation to the thing at USC, I was like "Wanna buy my flight?"

I think I'll be doing spring break in the Bay area if I have reason to visit.

Who am I kidding?  It's the Bay area; that's reason enough.
