The “We love SCC!” video may have been made in the 1980’s, but we still love it! And on Friday, June 21, another group of our alumni will gather at Vanguard University to participate in the biennial Decade of the 1960s Reunion.
Most 1960s graduates proudly called their university Southern California College, although some of them attended the university when it was still called Southern California Bible College. The university’s name was officially changed to Vanguard University of Southern California on July 1, 1999.
The group of 1960s alumni has been meeting together for over a decade. The Reunion was created to help them stay connected with each other. It occurs every other year and is currently planned by two alums, Vonnie Franks and Sharon “Smitty” Saalinger. During this weekend-long event, June 21-23, alumni will spend time together in fellowship, stay overnight in the dorms, dine on lunch in the university’s new Veterans Courtyard of Honor, have an old fashioned Saturday night sing-along, and share meals in the on campus café.
You can visit vanguard.edu/alumni for photographs of the event, coming soon!
