Established in 1907, Heritage University is a private liberal arts college located in Toppenish, Washington. It was initially named Holy Names College, and situated in Spokane, before it shifted to its current location. HU is located on the Yakama Indian Reservation, a Native American reservation. The college offers programs culminating in certificate, associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees in the fields of education, school counselling, fine arts, and public administration, among many others. With about 1,200 enrolments, the student body is known for its mostly diverse population. Most of them are non-traditional students with part time or full time jobs, and the close-knit student community at Heritage serves as a great support system.
