Alma Mater Goes Coed

February 1, 1973

The last verse of the Alma Mater which used to include the lines "Men may come and men may go,...ever to thy sons a pride," was removed in February of 1973. Being that the college has been co-educational since Zatae Longsdorff entered the class of 1887 as a sophmore, the third verse of the Alma Mater exluded a large part of the College community. First and second verses of Alma Mater were sung at College ceremonies since the change has taken place by President Howard L. Rubendall.
