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...


Dean Galloway     “I was the first person with tenure to be hired by President Vasche in 1960. When I arrived, I had nothing but a desk and a budget. We were in a building at the Fairgrounds featuring concrete floors and swamp coolers. It was kind of an impossible situation at the time, because there was no way we could put together a complete library collection. We hauled in truckloads of books from Berkeley. But we slogged through it and organized a pretty nice collection, considering that you need three years to prepare a library. Preparation time for the libraries at the next two new CSU campuses was extended after what we went through.
