Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

On October 18, 1978, representatives from 45 four-year colleges and universities converged in the Library/Science Building mall for the fourth College and University Information Day. Many students took advantage of this opportunity to speak with college and university representatives about their future. By the 1970s, the job market had changed significantly, and the expectation was that greater percentages of students would be transferring to a four-year institution to obtain a baccalaureate degree. A 1978 survey of 6,245 students, reported in the November 3, 1978 Hornet, showed that 19 percent of students did not plan to continue their education. Those who planned to transfer favored CSU Fullerton (35 percent) and UCLA (21.2 percent).
