Storm Fagersten gave the Undergraduate Student Address and Sandra Hutchins, President of the Senior Class, presented the class gift. John S.

In 1964, the first class of 4-year undergraduates enrolled at UC San Diego, the first of whom was Nancy Ann Walker, a Granite Hills High School graduate, on September 15, 1964. In June 1968 Chancellor Galbraith conferred degrees on this first 4-year undergraduate class of Candidates for the Degree of Bachelor of Arts. Roy Dimon gave the Student Address.
A basic curriculum prepared students for majors in the humanities, the social sciences, the biological sciences, the physical sciences, and mathematics. The first undergraduate library was established in Building E, which is now known as Galbraith Hall. Between 1964 and 1968, approximately 560 graduate and undergraduate students and 140 faculty members studied and taught at UC San Diego. The Class of '68... Birth of a University was recorded in the San Diego Union, September 13, 1964, along with an interview with Roger Revelle.
