FINAL_FortWorth40th_PosterColumbia College-Fort Worth will celebrate its 40th year of serving the Fort Worth and Dallas areas Aug. 23. The campus was established in 1975 at Naval Air station Dallas and relocated to NAS Fort Worth in 1997.

“We have enjoyed a tremendous relationship with the Navy and the Fort Worth community,” says John Hardy, campus director at Columbia College-Fort Worth. “Our students and alumni have certainly benefited from the immediate access to quality higher education opportunities here at the air station. We appreciate the support we have received from base leadership and look forward to continuing that partnership.”

More than 500 students take a mix of in-seat and online classes each year at the campus. The Fort Worth campus has produced more than 2,328 alumni during its 40 year existence. It was one of Columbia College’s first Adult Higher Education campuses, which began offering classes to adults and military students in 1974 at campuses in Missouri. Today, Columbia College touts 36 AHE campuses, 18 of which are on military bases.
