The students, faculty and classified professionals of Skyline College gathered on Tuesday, December 3 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary at a campus-wide celebration barbecue. The event featured five food trucks parked throughout campus with a variety of awesome free food to choose from including chicken and waffles and Filipino Burritos – participants lined up for free lunch tickets that they could spend at any truck of their choosing. Many people also walked away with some free 50th anniversary swag from the marketing table to show their Skyline College pride.
On top of all that, radio station 99.7 hosted a booth where they blasted music and radio DJ Saint John was there to get people hyped up. The station also raffled off two tickets to 99.7’s Poptopia concert featuring Normani, Halsey and headliner Lizzo! The winner received tickets and an opportunity to meet their choice of artist prior to the concert.
The event was an opportunity for the campus to come together and celebrate this incredible milestone. For 50 years, Skyline College has been empowering and transforming the people of this community – this barbecue was a small opportunity to give back and give thanks to the people who make that possible every day: the students, faculty and staff of this college. Thanks to all the volunteers who made this event possible!
