Located in Dallas County, Texas, Brookhaven College is a part of the Dallas County Community College District, the largest undergraduate institution in the state. The college offers community members the opportunity to take freshman and sophomore-level courses, from which the credits earned may be transferred to many four-year institutions.
Established in 1978, today the school has more than 10,500 students. The college’s symbol of a windmill dates back to its creation, at which time a 128-foot windmill was installed in the Commons Courtyard. While the physical windmill no longer remains, the symbol has become synonymous with the college over the past thirty years. Since its creation it has sought to maintain a dynamic, diverse student body, which is representative of the local community.
