Mexico City College
|This article does not cite any references (sources). (June 2007)|
In 1946 the college switched to a 4 year Bachelor of Arts degree-awarding institution, then changed its name to University of the Americas in 1963 and in 1968 to Universidad de las Americas, beginning a transition to be a Spanish-speaking institution, culminating with its move to Cholula, Puebla, in 1971.
Because of internecine problems the campus then split into two separate institutions:
- UDLA - Universidad de las Americas, in Mexico City, Mexico.
- UDLAP- University of the Americas - Puebla, in Cholula, Puebla, Mexico.
Unfortunately the UDLAP websites about MCC exalumnos are usually offline, UDLA does not have an alumni website, but a Yahoo! group has a handful of former MCCers who frequently chat about MCC and are managing to keep its history alive.
