Update

Alderson Broaddus University's name change is becoming more and more visible.

The Division of Highways has changed the signs on Interstate 79 to show the new name.

Alderson Broaddus has posted a picture of the new sign online, and said it's excited about the great reception it's received.

The university also has changed its letterhead and flag and will add new banners across campus as well.

"It's feedback that the community, our alumni, our students, our parents, future students, community members are all on board and really excited about the change," said Ashley Mittelmeier, of Alderson Broaddus University.

The college will reveal new signs at the campus entrances at a ceremony on September 2.


Original Story

Alderson Broaddus University made its name change official last week but there are still plenty of changes to come.

Alderson Broaddus said it's looking at everything from signs on the interstate to reorganizing its academic programs.

Organizers said it's a big job, requiring a lot of work from representatives from every department.

"I just can't say enough about the dedicated people that are working with me on this committee that's helping this come to fruition. There's a lot of people that are working tirelessly to try to get all of those details in line," said Eric Shor, of Alderson Broaddus University.

Alderson Broaddus said it will announce more big changes in September.
