Bellevue Community College officially opened its doors on January 3, 1966, fulfilling the community's dream of a local, accessible institution of higher education. Lacking facilities of its own, the college held classes in the evening at Newport Senior High School. In the decades since, the college has grown to become the third largest institution of higher learning in the state, and has emerged as an educational leader, known nationally for its innovations.
