Marymount College proudly announced a change in its name in March, 45 years after its founding. Marymount is excited to move forward under the name Marymount California University, MCU for short. The new name represents the ongoing transitions the college has experienced over the past few years, beginning with the undergraduate programs and the new graduate programs. The Marymount community hopes that the change will allow the college to "embrace its multiple communities along the Pacific Rim", which now includes the new Lake County, Northern California, location. The Marymount community is very excited to preserve the foundations from which it was founded, while embracing the progressive transitions experienced as well its future.
