Canary TrillsWe have digitized our student literary publications from 1921 through 1935.

Before the student newspaper began, students were hard at work creating a publication to both inform and entertain their fellow students. The first student publication began in 1920 and was called "Canary Trills." The name changed to "Rambler" in 1928. Rambler continued well after the student newspaper started in 1936.

Other publications have come and gone and students continue to publish literary and creative publications today.

2014-2015 -- Celebrating the 1960's

The college experienced much change in the 1960s, as did the country. Many traditions, including Rose Day, were discontinued. The Student Senate became the governing body for students. Some programs ended, while new programs emerged, notably in communication sciences and disorders. Students were active politically and in the community. The greatest change came with the admittance of the first undergraduate male students in 1969.
