Summary
  • This monograph gives a brief chronological history of JMU, first known as the State Normal [and Industrial] School for Women in Harrisonburg, Va., then as Madison College, and since 1977, as James Madison University. Mentions presidents and their contributions, with an emphasis on the social traditions and life of the institution from a student point of view. Summarizes some of the significant social history and changes which have occurred since its founding including: campus myths; freshman initiation rights; studying habits; party traditions; sports; religious activities; various codes, rules and regulations (dress, honor); the changing focus of education; political unrest; and the change from a women's institution to a co-educational one
  • Statement of purpose: This oral history series shows how James Madison University has changed over the years, with an emphasize on student social life.
