Founded 1916 Golden Jubilee Anniversary For Capital College A HAPPY MARRIAGE of fifty years duration between Sacramento’s community college and the Capital City. Founded in 1916 in a wing of Sacramento Senior High School at 18th and K Streets, the local two-year institution of higher learning, one of the oldest in the State and in the nation, moved to 34th and W Streets, location for six years of class instruction. In 1925, the cornerstone for the pres¬ ent campus on Freeport Blvd. was laid. And in 1961 the word " Junior” was dropped from its official name. As of July, 1965, Sacramento City College was incor¬ porated into the new legal entity of the Los Rios Junior College District, which embraces all or parts of three counties. No longer the " orphan” of a lar ge city school system, SCC now has the financial resources—as well as the human resources of excellent instructors—to meet the cur¬ rent and future challenges of great numbers of students, including returning military veterans and other adults bound for more higher education and vocational training. To help meet these needs, many physical changes are presently on the drawing boards calling for the razing of buildings and the construction of new structures on the 52 acre campus. Next fall the student body will number over 8000 in day and evening classes under the tutelage of about 250 instructors. Before inaugurating the next era of another fifty years of progress, SCC will pause to observe its Golden Jubilee with a civic program next fall. In the years ahead, City College will continue to serve the community and its thou¬ sands of students in many ways—culturally and vocational¬ ly—in the professions, in business, and in industry.
