The Story of Assumption College
Assumption College was founded in 1904 by the Augustinians of the Assumption, a religious congregation founded in France in 1850. Initially, the students were sons of immigrants from French Canada who had settled in New England. During its long history, the college has lived through many changes. In 1969, women matriculated as undergraduates for the first time. The physical plant portfolio has been greatly enhanced since 2000 with the completion of new buildings such as the Testa Science Center, Information Technology Center, dormered art studios, new residence halls, and the Multi-Sport Stadium, as well as major renovations to academic buildings, dining facilities and residence halls
