Founders' Day U Park

Lion Ambassador Janine Mikulca offered cookies to the crowd celebrating Founders Day on Feb. 11 at the Hintz Alumni Center on the University Park campus. The alumni event looked forward to Feb. 22. It was on Feb. 22, 1855, that Gov. James Pollock signed the charter establishing the college of scientific agriculture that grew to be one of the world’s most distinguished centers of higher education. The University's official sesquicentennial begins July 1 and will be a yearlong observance.
