When the school officially changes its name, it will be just three days after the Class of 2019 becomes the last class to graduate from Dordt College.
Dordt has had a few name changes over the years. It started as Grundy College when the school was located in Grundy, Iowa, then later became Midwest Christian Junior College. The school was then renamed as Dordt College in 1956 or 1957. Hoekstra said the history is a little unclear on which year that actually happened.
Dordt University is a private, Christian, liberal arts university in Sioux Center, Iowa.
