Celebrate 50 Years With Us

We celebrated 50 years in 2010-11, however, the anniversary site is still active and it is rich in information about our history, how we became the university we are today and how we celebrated -- enjoy!  Special thanks to the many, many members of our faculty, staff, students and those in our community who helped make this celebration a huge success.
