Las Vegas College will officially change its name to Everest College on Aug. 10, 2009. The name change is part of an effort by Las Vegas College’s parent company, Corinthian Colleges, Inc., to leverage the Everest brand and make its schools more recognizable nationwide.
"Las Vegas College has been providing high-quality education to Nevada residents since the late 1970s. Under the Everest College brand we will continue to offer a wide variety of programs geared toward the needs of students and employers in our region," said David Fritz, campus president.
"Our school will become part of a network of 100 Everest College campuses in the U.S. and Canada. We believe the name change will allow us to better serve our students and their prospective employers while creating efficiencies in marketing, advertising and operations," Fritz said.
Current program offerings include accounting, business administration, criminal justice, massage therapy, medical administrative assistant, medical assisting and paralegal.
The Las Vegas campus will continue to be located at 170 North Stephanie St., Henderson, Nevada.
