Stop the Serenading!

November, 1888

In the "Editorial" section of the November 1888 Dickinsonian recalls both what the college owes to Carlisle and what Carlisle owes to it. The citizens of Carlisle called for the stopping of student serenading. Policemen were hired to keep a lookout for "student singers on the streets." The town proclaims to the college, "No serenading of fair maidens at midnight" because they had been subject to these serenades for long enough.
