The Beginning of Freshman Studies and Freshman Studies of the Modern Age

This exhibit on display in the cases in Riverview Lounge documents the beginning of Freshman Studies in 1945 and looks at how it has evolved in recent years. Syllabi and reading lists, correspondence from other colleges regarding the program, and photographs of the first professors of the program and recent photos of Freshman Studies classes are included. A look at what life was like at Lawrence in the 1940s is also provided. The exhibit was done in honor of the Freshman Studies party that took place at the end of Winter Term. The exhibit will be up through April.
