Livingston College Yearbooks

[Also see Students' MemoriesDeans' ReflectionsDocumentation of Livingston College History.] 

Livingston College opened its doors in 1969. No yearbooks were produced for the graduating classes of 1970, 1971 and 1972, which included transfer students from other colleges.

Livingston in the Retrospect, 1969-1973 was published as a memento for the first full four-year graduating class in 1973. It included photos of students and organizations, plus letters from officials, though not photos of the graduating seniors.

The first traditional Livingston College yearbook was published in 1974.

In 2006, Livingston College admitted its final four-year cohort, the Class of 2010. The final Livingston College yearbook was published in 2007.

Several Livingston College yearbooks, as well as older yearbooks from other Rutgers colleges and schools [* see note near bottom of page], are online and fully searchable through the Rutgers University Libraries (RUL) site.

Five Livingston College yearbooks are available through RUL:

All of those yearbooks, plus many additional yearbooks, are available online through the Internet Archive as listed below. This project is made possible through financial support received from the Rutgers University Alumni Association.

There are no extra yearbooks available for purchase through Livingston Alumni Association or Rutgers University. 

The following Livingston College yearbooks are available as listed below. The volume numbers are as listed in each publication, even though the volume numbers are inconsistent (with some numbers skipped, repeated, or going backward). Note that the yearbook title was not always printed on the cover. This page will be updated as information is received.
