FULTON COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Fulton-Montgomery Community College is celebrating 50 years and a lot has changed in five decades. The student body has grown eight times since it opened in 1963.
You'll find snapshots showcasing students and staff from the last 50 years scattered around the campus and in the college's gallery.
FMCC President Dustin Swanger says while the school has welcomed change over the years, the focus has always remained the same.
"We've evolved a lot of curriculum over the decades. At one point, we had the leather industry here, so we had a leather making curriculum and now we have a nano-technology curriculum. So a lot has changed while the spirit of the campus has stayed the same in that it's a very welcoming campus and very focused on student success," Swanger said.
The college will be holding a series of events to celebrate the milestone. For more information on those events, visit www.fmcc.edu.
