The 2016-17 academic year will be one to remember as Pierce College embarks on its 50th year of providing the community with access to quality educational opportunities.
We are proud of the quality of our programs and the many ways we’ve helped students, families, businesses and our community grow.
Pierce College kicked off this exciting year on Oct. 7-8, during the first-ever Homecoming event, providing the community with a chance to reconnect with Pierce College. The festivities on Fri., Oct. 7 focused on a volleyball game against Tacoma Community College followed by a day of fun for the whole family on Oct. 8.
The Raider Athletics Department will also host a special 50th anniversary edition of its Hall of Fame Dinner on March 25. This celebration will serve to honor individuals and teams for athletic achievement and coaching, and other noteworthy accomplishments.
Pierce College will also hold a 50th Anniversary Gala on April 22, a formal evening to look back on our history, honor a few exceptional alumni, and celebrate the promise of what lies ahead.
“This is an exciting time for Pierce College,” Chancellor Michele Johnson said. “Our 50th anniversary provides an opportunity to reflect on our past, celebrate the present and move forward with a renewed dedication to our community and our students. We invite the community to join us in our celebrations by attending one of our many 50th anniversary events.”
To close out this special year, Pierce College will host a 50th Anniversary Capstone event on June 10 on the Puyallup campus, where we invite the community to help us celebrate the past and future alike.
The college will also take this milestone anniversary as an opportunity to thank the community for 50 years of support. The college has committed to 50 service events throughout the year, including food drives, community partnerships, park cleanups and more.
