Freshman Week, 1931

Freshman Week was held in mid-September, 1931, on the campus of the North Carolina College for Women (now The University of North Carolina at Greensboro) and was roughly comparable to the SOAR events which are happening on campus right now, providing an orientation to the campus and opportunities to consult with individual academic departments and campus groups. 

This booklet, published by The Carolinian, included a welcome to 450 incoming freshmen and some notes on "campus standards" reminding students to use sidewalks and trash cans and "to be especially quiet until 7:00 o'clock in the morning on week days and until nine on Sundays."

In 2012, the Digital Projects team also welcomes incoming freshmen but we prefer to stress the importance of recycling bins over trash cans.

The items from this post are taken from MSS88, the Margaret Catherine Moore Papers, and are part of an ongoing scrapbook digitization project that will be available for use next year.
