Alumni Magazine Article: J-Hop

31 07 2009

In the Summer 2009 issues of the MSU Alumni Magazine, is an article written by Public Services Archivist Portia Vescio on the history of the J-Hop.  The J-Hop, junior hop, was the social event of the season on campus.  Beginning in 1888 and ending in mid-1960s, the J-Hop provided students with a great opportunity to get together, socialize, and have fun.  the rise of student dissent and the emergence of non-traditional students after World War II were a couple of the factors that contributed to the decline of the J-Hop.

Also in the MSU Alumni Magazine is an article by Robert Bao about the Residence Halls.  This article features several photographs from the MSU Archives.
