Welcome to California University of Pennsylvania's History site. On this site, you will find significant moments from our university's 150 years arranged by the decade in which they occurred. The significant events contained within these pages include our university's principals and presidents, new buildings, academic and athletic achievements, achievements of our faculty, students, staff, and alumni, major wars and their impact on the university, and much more. We hope that perusing these pages will give you a better understanding of what makes California University special.

The site designer would like to thank Regis Serinko, Ph.D., author of California University of Pennsylvania: The People's College in the Monongahela Valley, Beth Baxter, former editor of the California Review, Bruce Wald, and Helen Grochmal for their writing and assistance on this project.
