The First 40 Years

In 1931, a video was compiled of various footage documenting the first 40 years of North Park University (then called North Park College). The finished product was shown to alumni and friends of the college at a commemorative event that same year. Now, 80 years later, we have pulled some highlights, added a little background music, and are sharing it with a new generation.

You can also view the film in its original, full-length, and silent form.
