Saddleback celebrates 40 years.

Saddleback celebrates 40 years.

Saddleback College turned 40 years old this week and the campus looks as young as it ever has.  The College had a short but colorful celbration on Tuesday afternoon that included free burgers, hotdogs, chips, drinks and cookies. 
A 1960’s themed gameshow portrayed what it was like back in the day with trivia questions from the time and prizes for the right answers.
Everyone loves a free lunch and so there was no shortage of folks eager to take a bit back from the cost of their college expenses.  The sunn burned off the marine layer that kept the morning cool but brought a bueatiful sun out across the quad next to the where the old cafeteria used to be.
It seems if anything has kept Saddleback College young, spright and progressive, it’s the students and there is no shortage of kids taking advantage of a good education where you get your dollars worth.  The facilities were great when I was there back in the mid 80’s and even when my brother was there with Abe Lincoln, I imagine it was just as good.  You can’t hold back the future and so with technology as it is, it isn’t much to imagine what there is to offer; it might be shorter to list what there isn’t.
Long Live Saddleback College!
