University/Athletics: An Interesting Historical Perspective Written By 147 Students/Faculty -1928-01

A Unique Historical Perspective of SLI, USL and UL by Former Students/Faculty

In 1998 the request was made for former and current students/faculty to submit letters for the Centennial Celebration in 1999. One hundred and forty-seven letters were received from students as early as 1928 to the projected graduation of 2001.

Others have proclaimed the 147 letters, which contain an unbelievable wealth of information about student life, transportation, dorm life, classes, professors, athletics, WW II, the great depression – as the most interesting collection of historical information about the university that  they have ever read. They are of such interest that you will certain go back and read more.
