Arcadia Publishing, 1 okt. 2000 - 128 sidor
For many, the college years represent a special time in a personas growth, supplying friends and fond memories for a lifetime. In the Carolina Upstate, thousands of men and women have shared a common experience through Winthrop Universityas traditions, classrooms, and campus. Although a picture may be worth a thousand words, it is a voice relating personal experiences that truly provides a clear vision of the past. In Winthrop University: Memories and Traditions 1886a1945, these voices take center stage, recounting stories that illuminate and celebrate the universityas diverse history, from its founding in 1886 to the mid-twentieth century. Throughout this volume, readers will trace the evolving Winthrop experience across a very different landscape than today, a time of different customs and etiquette based on a more rigid formality. However, within this world, the young female students at Winthrop still found many opportunities for fellowship and fun, whether it be a midnight aturkey trota on the eve of the twentieth century or the annual May Day festivities. These narratives, combined with over 100 black-and-white images, transport readers across the changing decades and highlight some of the schoolas most historic moments, such as the its relocation from Columbia to Rock Hill.
