Campus Activities: the 1960s through the 1980s

From the late 1950s to the early 1990s, the campus photographer was Lew Arnold. Along with documenting major campus events like Homecoming and Commencement, Arnold photographed smaller moments in student’s lives.

Here are some of his photos of campus activities that are favorites of the Special Collection.

A female student reading on the Quad circa 1960 to 1979. Personally, we’re big fans of her flipped hairstyle.

Greek Week in 1962 with students pointing to their sorority or fraternity affiliations.

Continuing the Greek theme, here is a sorority theme party in 1975. Unfortunately, we don’t know what sorority or what the theme was exactly, but it clearly involved apples.

An impassioned game of tug of war on the quad circa the 1980s.
