Class of 1989

1989 was a record year for the big screen and the internet as we know it. A German symbol of division was torn down. Nintendo released a way to hold our favorite games in our pockets. A satellite was launched into space that would later change the way we travel. And the Class of 1989 ventured out with new Booth degrees!

In 1989, Sir Tim Berners-Lee came up with the idea of the World Wide Web and the first operational GPS satellite launched into space, changing the way we search and travel forever. The Berlin Wall was torn down. Tim Burton's Batman hit the silver screen, becoming the first to earn $100 million within 10 days of release.
