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...
“We WERE the very 1st CSU Stanislaus Class of 1985, as CA State College Stanislaus officially earned University Status just before we began our 25th Silver Anniversary Commencement.
It was a true honor and privilege to have been a real part of that first "University" graduating class.
We had all lived through our own respective blood, sweat and tears during our CSUS learning adventures that culminated on that bright and hot Saturday morning, May 25, 1985.
I recall that our close group of friends and fellow Business Administration graduates who included Susan Gemperle, Mary Gurr, Cynthia DeLima, Sharon Goers, Lori Rogers, Neil Pack, Owen Burgess, and myself, had spent the prior two days taking in an overabundance of sun and fun while indulging in some pre graduation adventures between the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and Lake Turlock. The result was a slew of very sunburned individuals who summoned up our same levels of CSUS Spirit needed to accommodate wearing those burning hot black robes and enjoy what would be some of our final moments together before continuing on our own paths while starting to write those next chapters in our lives.
Good Times, Good Times!”
