The Brothers of Christian Instruction arrived to North Canton and formed a vision to turn 50 acres of alfalfa into a college campus. On November, 17, 1960, that vision came to fruition when the seven founding Brothers welcomed the inaugural class of 67 "gentlemen" to Walsh College's two-building campus. Never would they have imagined that over the course of the next 61 years Walsh College would emerge as Walsh University, a 136-acre campus with 27 buildings and 16,000 alumni and counting.
