Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

In 1977, the college spent $1.7 million to install a computerized system for registration. Compared to the old system, which involved card-pulling and excessive writing, the new system allowed the computer to do much of the clerical work. The Univac computer, however, was slow. It was expected to confirm a student’s class schedule in two minutes, but it ended up taking four to five minutes. In this photo, computer operator Audrey Smith (left) assists student Loree Dayton.
