2015-2016 Legacy Yearbook Editor: Issatou Fall
The Utica College Legacy Yearbook Office is located in the Strebel Student Center, between Strebel Aud. and the Pioneer Pub. A collection of yearbooks from UC's past is kept for reference. The Office of Student Activities, President's Office, and Utica Archives Office also keep a collection on hand. If you have any questions, please see Legacy Advisor Fran Lucia in the Student Activities Office, 205 Strebel Student Center.
While we know and love our collection of student photos and special moments, we didn't always call it by the name we do today. Here are some fun facts about the birth of The Legacy.
Since it's first publication by Syracuse University in 1947, the name of the Utica College yearbook has changed several times. Originally it was called The Onondagan, as is still the name of our founding University's yearbook. To reflect the fact that UC was its own college, while still being of Syracuse University, UC began publishing the book itself in 1950 and the name was changed to The Annales sometime before 1955.
"Annales" comes from the Roman word Annals, which is a collection of books written as a year by year account of the Roman Empire in AD 14-68. The last edition of The Annales was published in 1988, and the 1989 Yearbook went without a name, instead being dedicated to those we lost in Pan Am Flight 103.
The Legacy officially made its debut in 1990, signifying the gift of the years passed, and the bright hope of many more graduating classes of Utica College continuing into the future.

The Gay Alliance
The SafeZone program was created to develop, enhance and maintain environments in workplaces, schools and other social settings that are culturally competent and supportive to LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning) individuals, as well as straight, cisgender people who care about diversity, equality and inclusion.
What is a SafeZone?
A safe zone or a safe space is a place where all people feel welcome and safe. It may be a room, a car, or an entire college campus. The Gay Alliance SafeZone program aims to increase the awareness, knowledge, and skills for individuals and address the challenges that exist when one wants to advocate for their LGBTQ peers, family members, friends and co-workers. Creating safe zones or safe spaces is a proactive step that schools, agencies and corporations can take to create welcoming, inclusive spaces so that all people are empowered to reach their full potential.
