Cañada College Map 1968

Plenty has changed since Cañada College opened in 1968, but this campus map from the Library's archives probably looks familiar. The round circle in the middle, where the quad currently is located, represents an outdoor amphitheater. The dotted rectangular outlines show plans for a second academic building and an automotive technology center that were still in the planning stages on opening day, September 7, 1968. The college anticipated about 2,000 students enrolling the first year; 48 years later, over 7,000 students are enrolled in Cañada!
