Findlay College was founded by the Churches of God General Conference and City of Findlay citizens on Jan. 25, 1882. Construction of the first campus building, Old Main, began in 1884, and classes opened in 1886. The institution changed its name from Findlay College to The University of Findlay in 1989 to recognize the growth of programs and enrollment, and the addition of graduate programming.
