Forty years ago, UCI’s fifth commencement ceremony took place in  Campus Park, now Aldrich Park.  Dr. Harrison Scott Brown, Professor of Geochemistry at the California Institute of Technology, spoke on “Technological Change and the Human Condition.” There were approximately 800 students graduating on June 13, 1970. Just a few weeks ago, the forty-fifth commencement ceremonies saw approximately 8,000 students graduate in four days of commencement ceremonies held between June 5th and 13th.
