In 1861, Edward Austin Sheldon founded a teacher training school on the shores of Lake Ontario that would eventually become SUNY Oswego. In 2011, SUNY Oswego celebrates its Sesquicentennial.
"The entire campus community is looking forward to a spirited yearlong celebration of SUNY Oswego's 150th anniversary," said President Deborah F. Stanley. "In recent years we have accomplished much in revitalizing our campus and refocusing on student learning in a way that has been transformative.
"Recalling and honoring our rich past can only motivate us more as we strive for what will surely be even greater times ahead for our college," she added.
The theme of the Sesquicentennial year will be "Celebrating 150 Years of Engaging Minds and Opening Doors."
Formal activities will begin with the college's Commencement May 14 and continue throughout 2011.
Alumni are invited for a special Sesquicentennial edition of Reunion June 10 to 12.
"We will celebrate milestone anniversaries as usual with our 10th, 25th and 50th year classes, but all alumni are invited back for this special celebration of our college's rich history," said Betsy Oberst, associate vice president for alumni relations and stewardship. "Whether your class or group is holding a special reunion or not, we invite everyone back to campus to mark this once-in-a-lifetime anniversary."
In addition to the Commencement and Reunion celebrations, committee members are planning events throughout the year, including special festivities to welcome back students in August; a tribute to Sheldon during Founders Day celebrations in October and a closing event in December.
An emblem has been designed and will grace special commemorative items, including banners, signs and printed materials.
