Salem's National College to change name

Posted: Updated:
SALEM, VA -

A for-profit college in Salem will change its name next month.

National College wrote on its website Wednesday, that it will become American National University effective March 4th.

"Since our founding in 1886, National College has continually been in a process of evolution," wrote National College President Frank Longaker, on the announcement of the upcoming name change.  "The transition of our Roanoke Valley Campus to university status recognizes not only the significant transformation of the college over the past 126 years, but our continued evolution through the 21st century. It is neither a beginning nor an end, but a waypoint."

National College's 29 other campus locations in six states will remain under the "National College" name.
