Lovely Yearbook Portraits of Students at Saint Joseph's College, NYC in 1969

St. Joseph's College (SJC) is a liberal arts college in New York State, with campuses located in the Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn, and in Patchogue, Long Island. Affiliated with the Catholic faith as an independent and coeducational university, the college provides education at the undergraduate and graduate levels, offering degrees in more than 54 majors, special course offerings and certificates, affiliated and pre-professional programs.

Originally named St. Joseph's College for Women, the college was founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Brentwood, in response to the need for a day college for young women in 1916. In 1970, a Charter amendment changed the name to St. Joseph's College and enabled the college to admit the first male students to full matriculation.

Here is a photo collection of yearbook portraits of students at Saint Joseph's College in 1969, the last year before the college was allowed to receive the first male students.
