Every May, we honor our Lumberjacks on the 50th anniversary of their graduation. Affectionately named, these "Golden Graduates" are a testament to the spirit and strength of our alumni. We invite all graduates from the Class of 1966 to join us for the festivities.

ASC/NAU Oral History Project

Dr. Gary Emanuel, Associate Professor in Educational Leadership has established an Oral History Project.  This oral history project is focused on collecting oral histories from graduates and faculty of Arizona State College/Northern Arizona University. The target audience includes graduates and faculty of the College of Education from 1960-1969. As the project has grown, the oral histories of the graduates and faculty have come from all faculty and graduates during the years 1934-1979. As of May 27, 2010, 73 interviews were completed with 53 housed on the web site, ascnauoralhistoryproject.pbworks.com

Learn more and sign up to participate by downloading the Oral History Project Form.
