November of 1963, Saginaw Valley College was chartered as a private
college. The first classes were held in the basement of the current
Delta College site. Here the students attended classes until Saginaw
Valley College was built. In December of 1963 the Saginaw Board
of Director's introduced four possible name choices:
of the North
- John Fitzgerald
It was determined
with a clear majority that Saginaw Valley College was the name of
choice, thus by the end of 1963 Saginaw Valley College was born.
In addition to establishing roots, Saginaw Valley College's insignia
was also created. This is an example of Saginaw Valley College's
first identity. The explanation of its symbols
reflects the unique identity of the college.
