Northwest Florida State College began a year-long recognition of its 50th Anniversary on April 17, 2013 - encompassing the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the college by the Florida legislature in April 1963 through the first semester at Okaloosa-Walton Junior College (OWJC) in August, 1964. The 50th Anniversary focused on "Continuing the Vision" of improving lives through higher education - a vision that started in 1963 with OWJC and continued through the college's years of service as Okaloosa-Walton Community College (OWCC- 1988 to 2004) and Okaloosa-Walton College (OWC-2004-2008) though its current status as a state college (2008 to present).
