A Banner Year Begins

The long-awaited year of celebration and proud Penguin history is officially underway, as we mark the start of our sesquicentennial year and honor our founding in 1865.
As this year unfolds, please visit our Sesquicentennial page often for a calendar of events, the link to a timeline of Cushing's history, a downloadable monthly calendar wallpaper for your desktop, and stories from 150 years. We look forward to hearing and showcasing your Cushing stories and will soon be in touch with a way for you to share them via the website. 
We hope you will join us in celebrating on campus and at regional events throughout the year!
