Once in a Lifetime Experience

Many may not know, but Fullerton College will be celebrating its 100th birthday next Fall! We will be kicking the celebration off in April with an exhibit of how Fullerton College and Orange County from 1913 to present day. They will also show portions of what the future of Fullerton College and Orange County might look like. The exhibit will be at the Fullerton Museum from April through mid-July.

For the new students who will be here during this once in a lifetime event, it will be something you will be able to tell your children and grandchildren about. If one takes a step back and stops, you realize that you have now become a part of history! When people talk years down the road about Fullerton College, one can proudly say, “I attended/worked at Fullerton College when they celebrated their 100th birthday.” How awesome is that!

I encourage everyone to take a look at the Fullerton College Centennial website, http://www.fullertoncollegecentennial.com/ and if you want tell your story of how you ended up at Fullerton College and if you have lived in Orange County for all or a significant portion of your life what your experiences were growing up. You don’t need to be an alumni or a student who is in their final stages of graduating to tell your story, we want to hear everyone’s story!

This is going to be a great year of celebrating and a once in a lifetime experience for everyone, unless some plan on living to 120 or more (won’t go there with the older faculty)! ;-)

Until next time!
