On to the Next 150 Years . . .

Also celebrating a milestone last October was the Medical Center, which rolled out the red carpet for alumni and guests in celebration of its 75th anniversary.
The culmination of more than two years of planning, the 150th anniversary provided a heartwarming opportunity for the University and its many communities to reflect on the way Rochester touches the lives of people-not only during the past century and a half but also for generations to come, says President Jackson.
"The Sesquicentennial celebration continues to reverberate-on and off campus -in a renewed appreciation for the teaching, research, service, and community that makes Rochester what it is," Jackson says. "No one wants to see the spirit and momentum come to an end."
