One hundred years have passed since the beginning of St. Ambrose
College, one hundred years of developing, striving, failing, succeeding. A
countless number of people has passed through the hallways of this
institution, taking from it the rewards of knowledge and growth, and
giving to it a part of themselves.
The word "institution" can sound so cold. A better term for St. Ambrose
is "community." A century of existence is a foundation that holds strong,
and the strength arises from the many who have become a part of this
Now, at the end of its first century, St. Ambrose reaches a turning point.
2,185 people were enrolled in the 1982 Fall semester, setting a new enrollment record for the college. A high enrollment means new faces, larger
crowds, and naturally more growth. But in the midst of all this expansion,
the beauty lies in the fact that the individual is remembered.
