The History of a University

As Sonoma State University moves beyond its 50th anniversary, The History of the University project celebrates a rich past. Photographs, documents, media clips, and other objects of historical significance to the campus and wider community, dating back to the mid-1950’s, are represented. The current exhibit samples a range of historical moments, including some from the visual and performing arts. Future exhibitions will center on campus life, athletics, and notables.

Materials from this exhibit were selected from the University Archives. Special thanks to University Affairs for use of the University Photo Archive, without which this project would not have been possible.
