The collection includes printed materials from college sponsored programs, college publications, scrapbooks, correspondence between a student and her family, textbooks from the required course GE 201-202: Literary Foundations of Western Culture, numerous documents and artifacts from Greek life, athletics, student life, and academic programs and activities. The collection presents a helpful overview of the academic program and student life at the college during the early 1960s, and follows the interaction of class members with the college as active alumni, highlighting their service to the college, honors and awards received, and activities during class reunions. Of special interest are legacy statements written by class members reflecting on their time at the college and how those experiences shaped their careers and lives after graduation.
