The college produced a 50th Anniversary Coffee Table Book detailing the first 50 years of Moraine Valley Community College. The book was unveiled at a special event in the bookstore.

A coffee table book documenting the first five decades of Moraine Valley Community College’s history is available at the college’s Bookstore.

“This book is such a nice keepsake,” said Clare Briner, director of Marketing and Communications. “What makes it so special is that there are a lot of great photos indicative of the time and era, and it features former students and staff as well as current staff who tell a story about their connection with the college.”

Highlighting the early days when the doors opened for the first students, the anniversary book also details growth in enrollment and programs, new buildings, and the accomplishments of the students and staff over the past 50 years. Many former and long-time staff members as well as students share their stories throughout the 72-page hard cover book.

Written and designed by the college’s Marketing and Communications Department, the book is $9.99 and available in the Bookstore, Building D, on the main campus in Palos Hills, or online at
