Paris Junior College
Paris, United States - Texas


University description (as per official university website)


Paris Junior College was established by the Paris Independent School District on June 16, 1924, in response to the communitys need for an institution of higher learning.

The Board of Education elected B.E. Masters, principal of Paris High School, as dean, and the college opened its original downtown campus in the high school building in September 1924 with seven faculty members and 91 students. Later, 39 extension students were added to the roll, for a total of 130 students the first year.

The college moved into its own facility, the old U.S. Post Office building, during the summer before starting its second year. The building was donated to the Paris Independent School District by the federal government. In 1931 the college became an independent unit of the school system, and J.R. McLemore became the first president.

In 1934 Paris Junior College became a member of the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, and in 1937 the board voted to establish the Paris Junior College District, independent yet coterminous with the Paris Independent School District.

The campus was moved to its present site of 54 acres in 1940, and in 1949 the first board of regents was elected.

Paris Junior College located in Paris, Texas, about 100 miles northeast of Dallas has been a part of the Lamar County community since 1924 and is the oldest continuously operated community college in Texas.

Paris Junior College offers Associate in Arts, Associate in Science and Associate in Applied Science degrees, as well as Certificates of Proficiency in technical/vocational fields. The college has expanded its academic curriculum through the years to encourage associate degree and university transfer candidates. Since establishing its first vocational program jewelry and watchmaking in 1942 the college has been aggressive in adding technical/vocational programs that will benefit students entering the workforce.

The campus of 14 tree-shaded acres includes 18 major buildings and residence halls and provides students a unique and pleasant environment for learning.

Paris Junior College also operates campuses in Sulphur Springs, Texas, and in Greenville, Texas.

As of the spring 2009 semester, Paris Junior College's enrollment stood at 4,639.
