Blue Mountain College has changed its name to Blue Mountain Christian University.
Officials with the four-year Christian college in Blue Mountain, Miss., made the announcement during the school’s recent Founders Day Celebration, explaining that the new name better reflects the degree programs offered to students.
“Alumni and friends of the school support the clarity the new name provides, both in distinguishing the institution from two-year community colleges and in highlighting its Christian identity,” BMCU President Barbara McMillin said.
Outside of its various undergraduate programs, Blue Mountain Christian University offers master’s degrees in education and business administration. As of fall 2021, BMCU had an enrollment of around 1,000.
