In 50 years the University of Missouri–St. Louis has grown from one building, 26 faculty members and about 700 students to “a major educational presence in the region,” according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

David Ganz, assistant professor emeritus of accounting and associate dean emeritus of the College of Business Administration, has been with the university since almost the beginning and witnessed first hand the evolution of the campus.

“I used to know all the faculty on campus,” Ganz told the newspaper. “Now I don’t even know all the faculty in the business college.”

The Post-Dispatch’s coverage of UMSL’s 50th anniversary included a comprehensive look back at the university’s history and photos taken Feb. 1 at the Jubilee Kickoff at the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center. The newspaper also included on its website a gallery of UMSL images taken by Post-Dispatch photographers over the past half century.

KSDK (Channel 5) also covered the Jubilee Kickoff with a segment featuring station sports anchor and UMSL alumnus Frank Cusumano, BA speech communication 1984, who served as master of ceremonies for the UMSL event.
