On Saturday, April 27, Fullerton College will officially kick-off its Centennial with the opening of Legends and Legacies: The First 100 Years of Fullerton College. Running through July 14 at the Fullerton Museum Center, the exhibit explores the historical, social, and cultural growth of the college and its relationship with Orange County through personal histories and collections. Legends and Legacies also observes the growing role of technology in contemporary education and asks what the future of higher education should be.

If you have photographs, video, or historic memorabilia that you feel would be a valuable contribution to the exhibition's displays, we would love to hear about them. Perhaps you have photos of yourself interacting with friends in past college activities? Do you have videos of graduations, performances on the quad, athletic events, or group outings? Have you held on to beloved Hornet memorabilia? If so, our history team would be greatly interested to learn more about these items for potential inclusion in the exhibition.
Using more than 100 video interviews and extensive historical research, director Jay Goldstein will create a short series of documentaries that present the personal histories of some of our most engaging students and staff. The finished work, which will air on public television, our own television channel, and on our centennial website, will be entered in a series of documentary festivals.
The Fullerton College Traveling History Exhibition artwork, photographs, and graphics will be combined with historical text and human-interest stories to create a handsome color commemorative publication in both softbound and hardbound editions.
