Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

A teaching trend in the 1970s was the mobile classroom. Mobile units and trailers were converted into rolling classrooms that would bring a variety of educational services into local neighborhoods. Fullerton College instructors showed how to build homes, from foundation to interior decorating, how to cook and sew, and worked with students who needed basic English and math assistance. In this photo, student Patti Melton (center) and Bob Johnson (right) are talking with FC employee Mary Garrity in front of one of the mobile vans. The mobile units also served as a new source of advertising for adult programs.
