Day Girls

August 1962

Day Girls is a section in "Inside Information," a guidebook for women, published by the Dean of Women's office. Day Girls was the term used to refer to the female students that commuted to classes. While they did not reside in dormitories on campus they were "equally anticipated and welcomed." Facilities for relaxation and study were available in the bottom of Denny for day girls as well as a hot plate in case one of the day girls decided to "cook a morsal or two." According to the guidebook, the day girls got together once a month for a luncheon as an opportunity to get "better aquainted." The guidebook also notes that two upperclass day girls were involved in the Orientation Committee and looked forward to hearing how the younger day girls "took to college."
