Blue Ridge Celebrates 50 Years: 1969 to 2019

Much has changed since we opened our doors on Church Street in downtown Hendersonville to a few students in 1969. Blue Ridge Community College has grown to serving more than 11,000 students each year through. Fifty years later, we remain a vital part of our community.

Blue Ridge’s 50th Anniversary provides an exciting opportunity to reflect on our past, celebrate the present and move forward with a renewed dedication to our community and student achievement. Take part in the celebration by joining us at one of our celebration events.
