UCI Site Dedication Day was June 20, 1964, and many luminaries attended and spoke at the ceremony.  The Site Dedication plaque was unveiled by President Lyndon B. Johnson soon after he gave his address. Only a short 15 months later UC Irvine would open for classes with seven new buildings completed.

Below Chancellor Aldrich views the Site Dedication plaque in September 1965, soon after it was mounted on a wall near Gateway Commons (now the Libraries Gateway Study Center). The Site Dedication plaque is currently located in Special Collections and Archives in Langson Library.
