Column: Ivy Tech Community College has reason to be proud on 50th anniversary

Ivy Tech Community College is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. We’re certainly proud of our heritage but equally proud of how far we’ve come as an institution.

Ivy Tech has grown to become the largest singly accredited community college in the nation. We are the largest post-secondary institution in the state.

More freshmen are enrolled at Ivy Tech (18,564) than at Indiana University Bloomington (4,695), Purdue University West Lafayette (3,434), Ball State University (3,159), Indiana State University (3,175) and IUPUI (3,106) combined.

Forty-one percent of the state’s freshman class is enrolled at Ivy Tech Community College.
