Niagara County Community College was founded on November 8, 1962 as the 25th State University of New York-chartered two-year College. The first classes were held in October 1963 at the original Niagara Falls campus in what was a former Nabisco Shredded Wheat factory. The college soon outgrew its grounds and built a state of the art, eight building campus in Sanborn--the geographical center of Niagara County in 1973. Since that time, NCCC has continued to grow. The first graduating class consisted of 133 students in five curricula. Today there are over 6,000 students in over 70 programs of study.
