Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Despite the Vietnam War, the Watergate scandal, and the recession, there was always time on campus for fun. Here a student and his dog participate in a 1979 frisbee contest. When Frisbee throwing got out of control in the quad area, the Associated Student Senate voted, in 1974, to restrict the activity to certain days. Also popular during this era was streaking or running nude, through a public place. One notable streaking event took place on March 11, 1974 at 11:00 a.m., when two masked motorcyclists streaked around the quad area in front of the Student Center. Another fad was pinball machines, and the Associated Students leased a number of pinball machines which were installed in the Student Center.
