Let's Celebrate San Jacinto College's 60th Anniversary


In 1961, San Jacinto College opened its doors to the citizens and communities of East Harris County. This fall, the College celebrated its remarkable 60-year journey to become a leader in educational excellence in our community and a top five community college in the nation. Our anniversary theme, “60 Years of Service,” embodies everything we stand for: community enrichment, student-centered support, and workforce partnerships to build strong foundations for the future. Even after 60 years, we are just getting started!
