Elgin Community College is celebrating a big milestone this year – 75 years of excellence in teaching and learning. To honor the college’s history and achievements, events and activities are planned yearlong to recognize the many successes of its students, employees, trustees, and community members, who have helped ECC grow and achieve over the years.

ECC is hosting three 75th anniversary events this summer:

ECC 75th Anniversary Foundation Golf Classic

Monday, June 17, 2024

Elgin Country Club, 2575 Weld Rd., Elgin, Ill.

The annual tournament will follow a 4-person scramble format, adding a twist to traditional gold events. In a scramble, each team member hits a shot, and the team chooses the best shot to play from for the next shot. This format encourages camaraderie and teamwork. The event will help raise funds for student scholarships. For registration and/or sponsorship information, visit elgin.edu/foundation.

 

Mutts Gone Nuts

Saturday, July 13, 2024

Blizzard Theatre, located in Building H of ECC’s Spartan Drive Campus, 1700 Spartan Drive, Elgin, Ill.

Mutts Gone Nuts partners with local animal shelters to bring a show that promises laughter and heartwarming moments for dog lovers of all ages. The event is free, but seating is limited. Visit elginartscenter.org for reservations.
