On April 8, more than 1,000 students, faculty, staff, and alumni turned out on the North Lawn in front of the Loker
Student Union to form the outline of a giant “50,” to celebrate the university’s 50th anniversary and to participate
in a special photoshoot. Many of the participants wore gold T-shirts especially printed with the 50th Anniversary logo
and provided by the Office of University Advancement. The spirited festivities included
music, hot dogs, raffles and even an exciting flyover by the Goodyear Blimp that is based in Carson.
