Welcome Back Class of 1969!

Welcome Back to Campus Class of 1969! While many campus landmarks remain in place and the Mocs spirit is as strong as ever, a great deal has changed in the past 50 years. For example, here are a few facts comparing the university as it was in 1968-1969 to the 2018-2019 academic year:

  • Enrollment has increased by 365% (from 2,503 to 11,638)
  • Faculty and instructional staff have increased by 365% (from 156 to 726)
  • The number of degree programs offered has increased by 74% (from 46 to 80)
  • The number of degrees awarded has increased by 455% (from 466 to 2,585)
  • The size of the main campus has increased by 356% (from 31 acres to 141.35 acres)

Additionally, alumni from the class of 1969 will likely remember the remarkable 1968 football season, where the Mocs won 9 out of 10 games played, losing only to Ole Miss. In honor of the Homecoming season and the Class of 1969’s Golden Anniversary, check out these scenes from the 1969 Moccasin yearbook.
