On 26 May 1898, the St.Gallen Cantonal Council decided to found a "Higher School (Academy) for Commerce, Transport and Administration". Less than a year later, classes began with just seven students. 125 years later, the University of St.Gallen is a defining institution in Eastern Switzerland with over 9600 students. This was duly celebrated in the anniversary year.
Togetherness is an important pillar of the HSG community. The anniversary year promoted this in a special way. There was plenty of opportunity to celebrate together, exchange ideas and learn from each other. In addition, relationships were forged and strengthened at the various public events – between members of the HSG community and St.Gallen residents of all generations.
