Student Life Watch Video

Students were involved in a variety of extracurricular activities at the Normal School from drama to football. As early as 1908, students attempted to establish a newspaper, but it wasn't until 1914 that they were successful with the Green and White Courier.

Greek societies were forbidden on March 18, 1914. The Board of Regents enacted a rule preventing fraternities and sororities from being formed on campus and ordered that any existing groups be dissolved. Students were not happy with the Board and a few protests were lodged, but these early efforts to retain Greek societies on campus were not successful. During this same year, the first indoor track meet was held in Room 114 in the Administration Building and the first Walk-Out Day occurred.
