Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

This is an aerial view of the campus in the early 1970s. The population of Fullerton in 1970 had grown to 85,987, but the great growth spurts of the 1960s and 1970s stopped, and the city only added 17,000 new residents during this decade. Fullerton College started the Fall of 1970 with 10,075 day students and 4,800 extended day (evening) students. Enrollment was to rise to 23,000, but fluctuated widely during this decade because of economic conditions, the elimination of the selective service draft, and the transferring of many Vietnam veterans to four-year colleges.
