Re-live the glory and excitement of the Portland State College (PSC) 1965 GE College Bowl Championship season and learn how it put PSC on the map.

Join us as we celebrate the team's historic victories and get a behind the scenes look into how the team was selected, what they did to prepare, and the secret to their success.

You'll hear from 1965 team member, Jim Westwood '67 who will be interviewed by Jack Ohman '99, a member of PSU's 1999 College Bowl team.

The program will feature footage from the original TV program and College Bowl memorabilia from the PSU Library's University Archives Collection will be on display. Including the championship trophy!

The event concludes with a friendly competition between two teams of alumni and university and community leaders. You'll have a chance to play along at your table and test your knowledge. Could you make the team?
