A collection of materials documenting the history and development of Freshman Studies at Lawrence has been processed and a finding aid is available (though not yet online, as the website is currently under some construction.)
President Nathan Pusey introduced Freshman Studies in 1945. It has undergone some changes since then, including a period of suspension during the 1970s. Nevertheless, the course today is remarkably similar in structure and focus to the course as it was sixty years ago.
Stop by the Archives to view the collection. A selection of digitized documents from the collection is also available online.
