Ask Cam

New academic year - in 1910

July 27, 2011

Question:

Cam, are you ready for a new school year? It’s coming soon!

Cam’s answer:

Boy, don’t I know it! My schedule book (still can’t get used to electronic schedulers, but you try hitting those tiny keys with hooves) is already crowded with back-to-school events and activities galore.

Funny you ask – I was just wandering around our great University’s archives, and found a page from a 1910-11 College Catalog welcoming new students to campus.

Imagine stepping off the train a hundred years ago to begin your academic career, then (as soon as possible), presenting yourself to the president's office!

Yours in historical perspectives,

Cam the Ram
