125th Events


Below this web column is the Slippery Rock University 125th timeline (Scroll down to view).  The timeline consists of a variety of Slippery Rock University historical events from 1889-2014. 

Console and Controls

On the left and right of the selected event are arrows that can be used to browse in chronological order.  The timeline has an interactive console below the selected event.  At the bottom of the console there is a “ruler-style" timeline to assist in browsing through events and to assist the viewer in selecting events out of chronological order if desired.  In the left hand side of the console, are controls that allow the viewer to return to the start of the timeline, or have the console zoom in or out.  The viewer can “flick” the ruler style timeline left or right by holding left click inside the console and “flicking” left or right while releasing the mouse button.  This may help users browse to later events in the timeline faster.
