Mt. Sac Celebrates 75 Years

Mt. SAC is inviting its faculty, staff, students, and the neighboring communities to a Diamond Jubilee - a celebration of the College’s 75th anniversary on Friday, Oct. 8 at 5:30 p.m. at the brand new Hilmer Lodge Stadium. 
On September 16, 1946, Mt. San Antonio College opened for classes for the first time, leading the community in its recovery after World War II. Almost exactly 75 years later, Mt. SAC is again leading the community as they reopen classes and services through the pandemic.
"Now, more than ever, it’s important that we take time to pause and celebrate this momentous occasion," said Mt. SAC President and CEO, Dr. William Scroggins.
Kicking off at 5:30 p.m. in the new Hilmer Lodge Stadium, the outdoor event allows attendees to play sports-themed carnival games, relax to some live music, enjoy the family-friendly movie “Book of Life” under the stars, and more.
Admission and activities are free, including the games, movie, cotton candy and popcorn. Additional food options will be available for purchase.
The first 750 attendees will receive a free commemorative picnic blanket to use on the beautiful new football field while watching the movie. Visitors who sign up with the Mt. SAC Foundation at the event will also receive a stadium cushion.  For more information, please visit
