The Springfield Technical Community College is located in Springfield, Massachusetts. The school was founded in 1964 as the Springfield Technical Institute, situated a few blocks from the current campus location. In 1968 with the closure of a local Armory National Historic Site, used by the Armed Forces ever since George Washington created it in the late 1700s, the school moved to the site (where it continues to be located) to be able to meet growing demand for higher education; at this point, the name Springfield Technical Community College was applied. The campus comprises more than 30 acres with lots of greenery and open areas, which is a major attraction in and of itself.
The school is a two-year, public institution (part of the Massachusetts state college system) granting degrees up to the associate level.
