College History

History

Olive�Harvey College began serving residents of the South Side in the late 1950s with the opening of the Fenger and Southeast campuses of the City Colleges of Chicago. These two campuses were then consolidated and renamed Olive�Harvey College in 1970. Sitting on 67 acres, the College is the largest campus of any of the City Colleges. The school's name is derived from two Chicagoan Medal of Honor recipients who lost their lives in the Vietnam War: Milton Olive, III, paratrooper, and Carmel B. Harvey, infantryman. Both were posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Besides its main building in the Pullman Community Area, Olive-Harvey also includes the South Chicago Learning Center located at 3055 E. 92nd Street, a facility that provides vocational training, technical training and adult education courses to adults in the Chicago region.
