College of Saint Mary Magdalen Changes Name to Northeast Catholic College

The College of Saint Mary Magdalen changed it's name to Northeast Catholic College. Susan Doucet authored an interesting article for the Concord Monitor on January 24, 2015 placing the change in the context of recent name changes at other New Hampshire colleges.

The institution was initially founded as Magdalen College in 1973 in Bedford, NH. It relocated to Warner, NH in 1991. The name was changed to College of Saint Mary Magdalen in 2010.  The curriculum of Northeast Catholic College is based on the Great Books and enrolls less than 100 students.
