Caldwell College earns university status

By ,

Caldwell College has been upgraded to Caldwell University. The switch was made official July 1 with the announcement of its new name and logo. The change comes after 75 years as a college and a trend of steady growth.

Vice President of Enrollment Management and Communications Joseph Posillico spoke to these trends.

“We’re going to bring in 370 freshmen, which is our largest class ever,” he said. “We had 330 last year, 306 before that.”

In total, their traditional enrollment will be close to 1,300 students, up from 950 five years ago.  Of those students, the campus will house 625 students and residents, which is up from last year’s number of 543.

Tuition for the upcoming year will be $28,900.

“It is a new day and thrilling for all of us, especially for everyone who worked on the rigorous process to get us to this point,” President Nancy Blattner, Ph.D., said in a press release.

For Blattner, this is a defining moment in the institution’s history.

“We are celebrating our 75th anniversary; we have added two new doctoral programs in educational leadership, and our strong master’s programs are graduating students who are doing outstanding work in their fields,” she said.
