Santa Ana College is Turning 100 and You’re Invited to the Celebration
A century ago on a fall day in 1915, with only one building, 11 professors, and 24 students, dreams of academic success and bright futures began to take seed in Santa Ana. Today, with the help of faculty, staff, supporters, alumni, and students, Santa Ana College has emerged as a leading community college in Southern California.
To celebrate our legacy, share in our successes, and explore our boundless future, events are planned for our 100th birthday. A launch and time capsule burial kicked off the festivities on February 6, 2015, while other events, such as a birthday party and open house, are slated for the the 18-month Centennial celebration which runs through June 2016.
One part of the festivities that has already met success is the Centennial Scholarship program. A campaign of the Santa Ana College Foundation, the program recently reached a milestone of securing 108 new scholarship awards for its “100 for 100” program.
So, whether you support SAC’s academic program, or just want to be part of history, we invite you to join us during our 100th anniversary.
