Originally established in 1883 as Mission Institute by Southern German Conference Methodists, Blinn College has undergone a number of transformations over the years. After becoming a coeducational institution in 1888, the school shifted its name to Blinn Memorial College in honor of Reverend Christian Blinn, who was a major benefactor of the school. In 1930, the institution merged with Southwestern University, paving the way for a junior college four years later. Blinn College became an independent entity from any religious affiliations and Southwestern University in 1937.
Today, Blinn College operates as a two-year community college with its main campus in Brenham and satellite campuses in Bryan, Schulenburg and Sealy. Those living in student housing or an off campus apartment have access to Blinn College's exceptional academic programs and fields of study. The school features academic departments such as the Division of Agricultural Sciences, the Division of Business, Information Technology and Public Service, the Division of Humanities, the Division of Math and Engineering, the Division of Applied Sciences and the Division of Natural Science.
Student living and university living revolve around a variety of traditional campus student organizations and clubs. Blinn College also features men's and women's athletic programs, known as the Buccaneers, in sports such as football, basketball, baseball, softball and volleyball. The men's football team won the NJCAA championships in 1995, 1996, 2006 and 2009.
