Connecting the Past with the Present


Another prime goal of Special Collections is to collaborate with faculty and having students use primary sources. Past assignments have included;

  • FYS students writing a short paper and conducting a class presentation on some aspect of college history, how the college works, or the functioning of a program.
  • Communications students writing a feature article about the college's past.
  • History Senior Seminar students learning about research in an archives and using primary sources.
  • Religious Studies students learning how archives function and what can be found; also what are primary sources.
  • Sociology students examining a collection of marriage certificates and wedding photographs.
  • Students have also used the collections to write Senior honors papers.

We look forward to meeting with faculty in exploring the possibilities, and tailoring instruction and assignments for your class.
