Harrison College's Grove City campus will host its first commencement ceremony for graduates at 7 p.m. on Oct. 28 at the Grand Oaks Event Center, 1801 Gateway Circle.

Harrison College was established in Indiana in 1902, and opened the Grove City campus in September of 2009.

State Rep. Cheryl Grossman will address the class of 16 graduates. The ceremony will honor students from the June and September graduating classes.

"This is a huge milestone for Harrison College in Ohio, but it's just the beginning of what we plan to accomplish here," Pat Mozley, president of Harrison College's Grove City campus, said in a written statement. "Harrison College has graduated more than 75,000 students in our 109-year history. We want to have that kind of impact in Ohio over the next 100 years."

All 16 of the graduates earned associate degrees in one of six programs: accounting, business management, criminal justice, human resources, medical assistant, and medical reimbursement technology. Nine of the graduates are from the medical assistant program.
