Description: Montgomery College’s first classes were held in the evenings at a local high school on September 16, 1946. Our total enrollment was 186 men and women. Today, we serve nearly 60,000 students a year as they pursue a wide variety of educational goals.

On September 16, 1946, the first Montgomery College classes were held in the evenings at a local high school with a student body of 186 men and women. Today, the College has grown to a multi-campus institution and serves nearly 60,000 students a year, through both credit and noncredit programs, in more than 100 areas of study.

Dr. Tom Walker, Montgomery College history professor, encapsulates our tradition of preparing students for further study and career growth in this excerpt from Montgomery College History:

"In sixty years, approximately one half million men and women have attended Montgomery College. They have gone on to make countless contributions to the region, to the country, and to the world. After leaving the College, they have attended four-year colleges and universities where these former students have earned baccalaureates and graduate degrees. Their employment history is as varied as the economy itself. Many have started their own businesses and others have climbed the ladder of success in established private and public corporations. Many Montgomery College students have succeeded as judges, lawyers, physicians, teachers, public servants, and politicians. Some have returned to the college as teachers, administrators, and staff. Others have taken the skills they learned at the College and entered directly the trades and semiprofessional fields so vital to the economy of the region. Some have distinguished themselves in the arts. Others had carved out careers in sports."

- Dr. Tom Walker, professor of history at Montgomery College, is the author of Montgomery College History.
