Share Your Memories

Maybe it was the first time you felt like a bona fide college student. The last time you smelled the sulfur in the lab. Or maybe it was something your professor said that soaked in and stayed with you through the years. Tell us, and tell your fellow Warriors, what you remember most about your college years at CSU Stanislaus. We’re building a collective memory bowl from which to share nostalgia in dollops. Read about those memories here...

     “One of my favorite recollections of my years at Stanislaus State was sharing Dr. Peppers with President Carl Gatlin. Dr. Gatlin and I arrived on campus the same year, 1969. At that time Dr. Pepper was not as readily available as it is today. Gatlin was a Texan and Dr. Pepper was created in Texas. He loved it and one day while in his office for a meeting ( I was student body VP) he gave me one. From that day forward I would often stop by his office for a Dr. Pepper. If he was in he'd usually ask me into his office and we'd drink DP's, and talk about events on the campus or the war, anything and everything. As a student I thought this was the "coolest" thing. If he wasn't in I'd give his wonderful and classy office manager, Jean Deitz, a quarter and she'd allow me to raid the secret stash he kept in the small refrigerator in his office. Each time I enjoy a Dr. Pepper I think back to those conversations and smile.
