TROY — As an upper-division undergraduate and graduate school focused on business, Walsh College doesn’t have stuff like intercollegiate sports teams.
But it’s perfectly capable of having a Homecoming.
Walsh College will celebrate 90 years of business education with a Homecoming celebration Saturday, Sept. 22 from noon to 4 p.m. at its Troy campus, 3838 Livernois Road.
Attendees can reunite with classmates, faculty, and friends and see the changes happening at Walsh.
The event will include food and beverages, a Walsh Hall of Fame, games and live entertainment, including “The Macombers” from Macomb Community College; The Creatures Guy, showcasing eight exotic animals; Walsh’s International Student Organization, featuring Albanian dancing; and a performance from Walsh alumni from the Bulgarian Cultural Center.
In addition, guests can enjoy a photo booth, campus tours, and take part in a raffle and “Walsh Wars,” a Family Feud style game.
Started as an accounting institute in Detroit, Walsh has prospered through boom and bust in the economy, and is now an all-business college and one of Michigan’s largest graduate business schools.
Walsh was founded in 1922 and features nine business and related technology degree programs at the bachelor, master, and doctoral levels. The institution prides itself on keeping its programs responsive to student, employer and community needs. Walsh is a private, not-for-profit institution, offering courses and services at locations in Troy, Novi, Clinton Township, Harper Woods and Port Huron.
Walsh continues to grow and evolve, adding a 37,000-square-foot green building on the Troy campus in 2006 and developing finance and communications labs to enhance student learning beginning in 2012.
