Chamber After Hours today at Stevens-Henager College (Snake River Landing)

Stevens-Henager College's branch location at Snake River Landing
The Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce will be holding its first Business After Hours of 2013 today from 5 to 7 p.m. at Stevens-Henager College in Snake River Landing.

If you come, you may win one of $150 in gift cards being offered, to Stockmans Restaurant, Love At First Bite and Bella Vita Coffeehouse, all of them Snake River Landing tenants.

The Idaho Falls campus opened last May, but Stevens-Henager dates all the way back to 1891, when it was founded in Ogden, Utah, as Intermountain Business College. Its founder was James Ayers Smith, an educator from Nebraska who wanted to teach commercial subjects and place graduates in business positions. It changed owners and names several times, becoming Smithsonian Business School in 1910; Moench University of Business in 1938; and Ogden Business College in 1940. It became Stevens-Henager in 1959 and established its first branch campus in Provo in 1978. In addition to Provo and Idaho Falls, it now has branch campuses in Murray and Logan, Utah, and Boise.
