Reinhardt College in Cherokee County changed its name to Reinhardt University last Tuesday.
"The change of name to Reinhardt University accurately reflects the comprehensive institution of learning that Reinhardt has become," said university President Dr. J. Thomas Isherwood.
It now has forty majors, graduate programs, four teaching locations off the main campus, on-line classes, and classes for groups such as police and firemen.
Isherwood said the variety and quantity already exceeds what a college traditionally provides, and the institution's new strategic plan encourages continued development of evening, weekend and online programs for working adults and graduate students.
The university has about 1,100 students, but its strategic plan calls for growth to 1,500 over the next five years.
