- Los Angeles Junior College was established on September 9, 1929, by the Los Angeles Board of Education. Dr. William H. Snyder served as the institution's first director. During its first year, we offered only first-semester courses. The "semi-professional courses" were for students who wanted to limit their college education to two years, and the "certificate courses" were for those looking to continue toward university work. There were more than 1,300 students taught by some 54 faculty. The first Associate in Arts degrees were conferred June 19, 1931.
