The public junior college system of Alabama was established in 1963 through the efforts of Governor George C. Wallace and the Alabama Legislature. Enterprise was selected as the site for one of the original twelve state junior colleges. Area citizens and civic groups raised money for the purchase of a 100-acre campus site, donated library materials, and provided a number of scholarships— thus beginning a history of college and community cooperation for which Enterprise State Community College is noted. On September 27, 1965, the first freshman class, numbering 256 students, was registered at the College which was originally named Enterprise State Junior College. These students attended classes in rented rooms in downtown Enterprise and in the educational building of the First Methodist Church.
Fortunately these makeshift arrangements lasted during the first year, for in the fall of 1966 the present campus was occupied. This campus has grown and now consists of seven modern buildings situated on a beautifully landscaped site. An addition to the Learning Resources Center in Snuggs Hall, an addition to Lolley Hall, and a new building— Talmadge Hall—were occupied spring quarter of 1990. In 1983, the College began offering credit courses and non-credit short courses at the Fort Rucker site. Recently, in 2018, the site was closed.
