Harrison College, formerly known as Indiana Business College, first opened its doors in Marion, Ind. in 1902, and the college has operated in Terre Haute since 1968.
Harrison College currently offers bachelor’s degrees, associate’s degrees, certificates, and diplomas in more than 40 programs across five schools of study (Business, Criminal Justice, Health Sciences, Information Technology, and Veterinary Technology).
It also operates a culinary school, The Chef’s Academy, in Indianapolis and Raleigh, N.C.
“We wanted to celebrate our 110th anniversary in a meaningful way,” Brennan Randolph, campus president, said. “For more than a century, we’ve provided career-focused education in the communities that we serve. So opening our campus to the public for a networking event is the perfect way to celebrate this milestone.”
