Thorton Community College was previously the name of present day South Suburban College in South Holland, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. The college was founded in 1927 under the name Thorton Junior College, but changed to Thorton Community College in 1969. The name was once again changed in 1988 to its present name to more accurately reflect its location. In March of 1982, the theme for the open house event for the college was A Touch of Class. The term “a touch of class” was used to showcase all of the positive things the school was doing for its students, faculty, and community.
