Vol State is celebrating the 40th anniversary with a free community event on Friday, November 18. There will be special tours of the college, including program highlights to show-off what the college is doing currently. The International Education program will have displays about international travel-study and the international student population at the college. There will be story sharing, student music, a performance by the Pioneer cheerleaders and a free lunch. College leaders hope that alumni, retirees and the community will join current students, faculty and staff for the celebration.
Ground breaking for Volunteer State Community College was held on a cold and blustery day in November of 1970. Vol State opened for classes in October of 1971.
The free community celebration will be held in the Tiled and Carpeted Dining rooms in the Wood Campus Center on Friday, November 18 with lunch and tours of campus from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event itself will start at 11:30 a.m. On Saturday, November 19 the celebration culminates with the annual Homecoming basketball games, which will be held at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. with special 40th anniversary events throughout the day.
The college has a 40th anniversary web page with a picture gallery of Vol State through the decades. There are a number of blogs in which alumni, retirees and others can post their memories of Vol State through the decades, including a special blog for couples who met at Vol State. Those blogs and picture gallery can be visited at www.volstate.edu/forty
