National Coffee Day was celebrated earlier this week, on Tuesday, September 29th. We believe that one of the first places one could get a cup of coffee on campus was at the coffee shop on the bottom floor of the Gateway Commons (now the Gateway Study Center). That coffee shop is now the space occupied by the Orange County and Southeast Asian Archive Center (OC&SEAA). Photographs below show the coffee shop in the fall of 1965. Coffee and the ubiquitous cigarettes… at least in 1965 they were everywhere!
