Prince George's Community College first opened its doors on the campus of Suitland High School in 1957 before relocating to the Largo campus in the fall of 1967. During the college's tenure at Suitland High School, Prince George's fielded a men's basketball program. When the college moved to its current location, the birth of the intercollegiate athletics program was formed with the purpose of gender equity. The college joined the National Junior College Athletic Association in 1967. The athletic department currently sponsors seven intercollegiate programs, including the defending NJCAA Region XX Champion men's soccer and baseball programs and the defending Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference Tournament men's basketball team.
