1963 STUDENTS AT SAN FERNANDO VALLEY STATE COLLEGE

2010  THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES

San Fernando Valley State College was very different from modern California State University Northridge. Foremost, it was affording by teenagers and young adults from middle and working class families. Today, the cost of just text books and supplies for one semester exceed the yearly fees paid by Valley residents in the 1960s.
Here transfer students from LA Pierce College gather on the lawn of the new State College in 1963. The photograph is from an album once kept by the Chi Chi Chi fraternity at Pierce.
If you can identify any of these students at San Fernando Valley State, c. 1963, please refer to photograph number 1921. (click on image to enlarge)
