sesquicentennial 150 years
Sesquicentennial 150 years: We celebrate 15 of the many ways that we have fulfilled our promises and changed the world, from the founding of the first classes of rubber chemistry in 1909 to the creation of a groundbreaking Ph.D. program, biomimicry.
On 10.10.20, thousands of UA alumni and friends from around the globe joined together in virtual celebrations to mark The University of Akron’s 150th anniversary. Check out some of the entertainment and video messages as well as social media reactions.
The university celebrated its sesquicentennial in 2019-2020 by honoring and exploring its history, celebrating our current identity, and looking forward to the future.
The Ohio State community honored this landmark by celebrating the university’s land grant mission and the motto “Education for Citizenship.” This was done through extensive and varied programming. Our mission for the future is unchanged over time: to provide a pathway to education and research that leads to vibrant futures. We look forward to 150 more years of Buckeyes working together to create those futures.
The Carmen Collection focuses on the achievements, challenges, and experiences of underrepresented Buckeyes who have contributed to the creation of what today’s university looks like. These stories collectively reflect an institution composed of students, faculty, and administrators who are committed to a more inclusive, tolerant, and more understanding future. The University Archives will keep the Carmen Collection permanently.
