(GOSHEN) - Goshen College will now play "America The Beautiful" instead of the national anthem at sporting events.

The school stopped playing "The Star-Spangled Banner" after some students said the song promoted war.

Goshen's president said "America The Beautiful" fits better with the Mennonite church-affiliated school's beliefs.
