Harrison College (http://www.harrison.edu), a private sector college serving more than 4,500 students at 14 campuses in Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina and Online, will celebrate its 110th anniversary by hosting “The Harrison College Connection” – an open house, career fair, and networking event – at its Fort Wayne Campus on Oct. 23 from 10am-noon and 5-7pm. The event is open to the public, and admission is free of charge. The campus is located at 6413 North Clinton Street.

Job seekers will have the opportunity to submit applications with more than 25 area businesses that will be on hand for the event, including representatives from Parkview Health, Auburn Gear, Lutheran Health Network, Franklin Electric, and others.

Harrison College, formerly known as Indiana Business College, first opened its doors in Marion, Ind. in 1902. The college has operated in Fort Wayne since 1999. 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,” Charlene Purtlebaugh, 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.”
