A New Century

SCSU Photo ArchivesIn 1983,  the school celebrated the change to University status.  A time capsule, which was opened in 2008, was buried. Among the items included in the capsule were four copies of the Southern News, a cassette with a performance of the alma mater, and a napkin with the Southern Connecticut State College seal.

In 1993, SCSU celebrated 100 years with a centennial celebration. Above, the class of 1940 reunites for their 53rd reunion.






In the 1990s Southern drew attention for its involvement with the Special Olympics.  Organized on campus by the Department of Residence Life, the involvement reached a new level in 1995, when the university hosted the Special Olympics World Summer Games.
