Save the date: 150th celebration at OP on March 23


It’s not every day that you turn 150 years old! UC will achieve that feat on March 23, which was the university’s original Charter Day in 1868.

All UCOP staff is invited to enjoy a special celebration of the university – and of our individual contributions to its many accomplishments. Mark your calendars to save the date:

Date: Friday, March 23
Time: 2 to 4 p.m.
Location: Franklin Lobby and Lobby 1

The celebration will include remarks from President Napolitano, refreshments, music and a raffle. A portion of the event will be webcast for those staff members unable to attend in person.

The UCPath Center will also hold a 150th celebration onsite that day, which will include refreshments and a raffle.
