Treasures from the Archives
Some campus shenanigans
are destined for the archives

Among the thousands of photographs in the Archives are 27 glass slides donated by Christine Schweisberger '94 Rust and her father, Robert Schweisberger '62 in March 2005. The faint black-and-white images tell an engaging story of campus life and scenes in the early 1900s.

They also tell a story about how much has changed, in photographs of long-ago classes and buildings. Pictured fuzzily here is a much-different, balconied Oakwood Hall. Not only is today's Oakwood Hall different in structure, it is co-ed, with two-bedroom suites that make hallway dashes to the bathroom unnecessary.

Campus spirit giggles forth in this image from the 102-photograph album of Edith Yaney Shafer '23n. The women are trying to perch on the pedestal of the original Alumni Fountain between Baumgardner Hall and the Chapel. The fountain was removed when the two buildings were connected to form the Administration Building in 1921.
