From the Archives & Special Collections: Back to School

CALLOUT_BackToSchoolSoon enough we will be going back to school. All the stores are stocked with school supplies and dorm decorations. Empty rooms are waiting to be filled with posters, mini fridges, lamps, and rugs. How easy it is today to get all of that stuff. Just hop on over to Target and you’re set. I wonder where students got their school stuff in 1947? This young lady is all moved into her room in Anderson Hall. While sitting on her bed, she is sewing. The room does not seem to be much different than dorm rooms today but I am sure not many people will be sewing in them. For more pictures of dorms and campus in the 1900’s visit A Sound Past or come by the Archives & Special Collections.

The Archives & Special Collections is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 12:00-3:00 p.m. or by appointment.
