[LIB2359] After the retirement of Anna Neiderheiser as president in 1939, Cloyd V. Gustafson led the school on the first steps to becoming a liberal arts college. Dr. Lewis B. Carpenter became president in 1945. He began a building program and a push to achieving accreditation for a bachelor in liberal arts degree. The school name was changed to National College for Christian Workers in 1945 and to National College in 1958. The first BA degrees were granted in 1948, and men were admitted for the first time in 1954. [Website]
