Reunion 2017: Remembering

Back in the 1960’s, a tool for building class spirit was class jackets with the College emblem and beanies. Our class color was red; there was also green, blue, and purple. We had to wear our jackets and beanies with white skirts, stockings, and dress shoes on Class Days. I forget if we wore them any other time.

Josepha still has her class jacket and it still fits. Whoo hoo!

For blog readers of that era, did your college do anything like this? Would you share it? And for younger readers who are smirking at the hokey nature of it all — I get it. Traditions like this have long since gone by the boards.

  1. I went to a small liberal arts college. My goal was to go there 2 years and then transfer to a state university. I never left and graduated in 1968.

    We did not have uniforms but..we could not wear pants on campus unless they were under a skirt. Oh my. I never questioned it.

    I think I mentioned this before but I don’t have college friends in my class. I have good friends both younger and older from those days. Ray and I leave soon for a road trip to Maine and will connect with a college friend ( in the class ahead of me) during our stay. I’ll have to ask her if she remembers any dress code from those college days.

    It looks like you had a fun time connecting with your classmates. Beautiful campus!

  2. By the time that I entered CSE they evidently did away with the beanies, but kept the class jackets. Mine was forest green and I may still have it!

  3. for Joyce: We couldn’t wear pants under any circumstances even on the weekends. And yes, we never questioned it. 🙂
