Fullerton College 
Part of the North Orange County Community College District. Flash Interactive Campus Map. "This August, Fullerton College will begin its 90th academic year. As the oldest continually operating community college in California, Fullerton College’s roots can be traced back to a time when the city of Fullerton was primarily an agricultural community devoted to growing, packing and shipping citrus products. Originally enrolling 28 students in its first year in 1913, today Fullerton College boasts an enrollment figure of more than 20,000. Fullerton Junior College, as it was known from 1913 to 1972, was born out of a proposal made in April 1913 that the board of trustees authorize two years of postgraduate study at the high school. The idea was approved, and classes at Fullerton Junior College officially began in the fall of that year. During the teens and 20’s, the curriculum at Fullerton Junior College continually changed to meet the specific needs of the time. Military drill, oil drilling technology, manual arts and shop courses were offered during WWI, and by the mid-20’s, semi-professional courses such as typing, stenography, bookkeeping and office practice were standard fare. In 1934, the school board of directors purchased a 14-acre parcel of land located adjacent to the high school on the east side of Lemon Street for the use of Fullerton Junior College. Following reorganization and ownership changes, it was decided that Fullerton Junior College should be renamed to reflect its newfound independence from the high school. By 1972, Fullerton Junior College simply became known as Fullerton College. In anticipation of our 90th year, the College is planning a number of commemorative events, beginning with the unveiling of our anniversary logo. The logo was designed by Fullerton College Computer Graphics student Miriam Garcia and will be used on promotional materials throughout the year. • A public college paralleling the lower division of university education and offering, in addition, industrial, vocational, and general education. • Tuition-free to residents of California. • Low enrollment fee. • A part of the North Orange County Community College District, which serves Anaheim, Brea-Olinda, Buena Park, Centralia, Cypress, Fullerton, Garden Grove, La Habra, Los Alamitos, Lowell, Magnolia, Placentia, Savanna and Yorba Linda Districts. • Organized 1913. • Fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the California State Department of Education."

Santiago Canyon College 
The new campus at the top of the Orange hill. One of two Rancho Santiago College campuses. Campus Map. "In 1980, the Rancho Santiago Community College District (RSCCD) purchased 30 acres from The Irvine Company to build a college campus in East Orange that would meet the current and future educational needs of this rapidly growing community. Five years later in the fall of 1985, the Orange Campus began its first semester, offering a variety of general education, transfer and vocational education courses to more than 2,500 students. By 1996, enrollment at the Orange Campus had more than doubled. In May 1996, the RSCCD Board of Trustees continued its vision to develop a separate college to serve the residents of East Orange and voted to become a multi-college district; in July 1997 the Board voted unanimously to change the name of the Orange Campus to Santiago Canyon College. In January 2000, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges awarded Santiago Canyon College full accreditation. In fall 2000 with the donation of an 11.9-acre parcel from The Irvine Company, SCC’s campus grew from 52 to 64 acres. In November 2002, voters in the college district voted to approve Measure E, a $337 million bond measure to provide for renovation and new construction at both Santiago Canyon and Santa Ana colleges. In March 2003, the college broke ground on the new Student Services and Instruction building, which is expected to be ready for occupancy in fall 2004. The next building slated for construction is the Library/Learning Resource Center. In April 2003 the district used Measure E funds to purchase an 18.77-acre parcel (at the corner of Chapman and Jamboree) from The Irvine Company, bringing the college campus to 82 acres. The college’s master plan is being revised to include a future science building, student activity and sports center, expanded parking facilities, and more. Construction on these projects is expected to take place over the next 14 years. Upon completion, Santiago Canyon College will serve the educational needs of a projected 20,000 students."
