Connectlcut State College
To be a member of the Class of 76 IS to graduate durlng our B1centenn1al Year a year that marks the two
hundredth ann1versary of the Declaratlon of Independence In the course of two centur1es we have
welded the or1g1nal colomes 1nto a natlon that now spans a contlnent and beyond Eas1ly accesslble
natural resources coupled w1th 1ncreas1ngly productlve agr1culture and lndustry have g1ven us the hlghest
mater1al standard of l1v1ng 1n the world Schools colleges and cultural 1nst1tut1ons have kept pace w1th the
growth of commerce and lndustry NOtW1thSt3HdlHg part1c1pat1on 1n two world wars and several lesser
wars and our 1nvent1on of nuclear weapons we have had falth that cultural and mater1al progress 1S a
normal expectat1on w1th each passlng decade
The celebratlon of our B1centenn1al Year has turned our thoughts back to the h1stor1c developments that
have made our soc1ety what lt IS today All of us however need to look forward as well Wlll the trends of
the past contlnue 1nto the future? Can we contlnue to expect progress as we move from generatlon to
generat1onp Or IS It posslble that we ln the Unlted States together w1th the other 1nhab1tants of our globe
are at a turnlng pomt? Energy and other natural resources are no longer plentlful Democratlc soc1et1es
seem to be f1nd1ng It 1ncreas1ngly d1ff1cult to cope w1th the monumental problems we face
The future IS an uncertaln one Our mater1al standard of l1v1ng may or may not lmprove 1n the years
of the world s 1nhab1tants Nothlng short of opt1m1z1ng the appllcatlon of educated lntelllgence wrll enable
us to enhance the quallty of l1fe The real challenge faclng 1nst1tut1ons of hlgher learnmg IS to provlde
educatlonal opportunlty IH support of thls goal The challenge to today s youth IS to capltallze educatlonal
opportunlty so that they may contrlbute to an lmproved quallty of llfe
As we celebrate the B1centenn1al Year It IS appropr1ate that we revlew the herltage of the past two
centur1es It 1S equally appropr1ate that we look to the future The year 1976 1S llkely to be a turnlng polnt
ln our h1story yust as was true of the year 1776 Whether we move forward to an lmproved future or fall
effectlvely to cope w1th the economlc pOl1t1C3l and soclal problems of our day 1S dependent upon the
quallty of educated lntelllgence IH the body pol1t1c Thrs year s college graduates are a cruclal part of that
body pol1t1c and 1n a democratlc SOC1Cty must accept the1r share of respons1b1l1ty Those of us who have
tr1ed to provlde educatlonal opportunlty at Southern Connectlcut State College hope we have done
reasonably well ln fulf1ll1ng our m1ss1on we trust that our students have done equally well 1n cap1tal1z1ng
educatlonal opportunlty for the1r own beneflt and more lmportant for the beneflt of the larger SOC1Cty ln
