One hundred and twenty-one students, walked onto the Snow College campus for the first time on November 5, 1888.

The first enrollment numbers for Snow College was at 121 students. From the first enrollment at Institute of Snow, whose name has now changed to be Snow College, the student population has grown by about 42 times. Another unique thing about the college is it was a school for all ages not just post high school students.

The Noyes building was the only building on Snow College’s campus when it was established. The building went through a massive renovation in the late 1990s. The renovation was so extensive that the only thing left standing was the outside walls. They changed the inside of the building so that what was once a hall made of classrooms now stands as the administration building. When they were reconstructing the building they made the infrastructure out of metal. They also added an entire new floor to the building, they took out the ballroom on the third floor, and they added another floor where the attic was, where Founders Hall is now.

The week was filled with many different activities. On Thursday, President Carlston had the President’s Leadership Team deliver cookies to the faculty members around campus. On Friday, President had cupcakes handed out at the Plaza so students could join in on the birthday celebrations. To finish off the week there was a Founders Day Concert held on Friday night so the community could celebrate the incredible college that Snow has become in its 128 years running.
