SCAD’s fall quarter begins next Monday. Welcome to all of our students, whether you’ve just arrived in Savannah for the first time, or are coming back after summer break. Staff at the Jen Library are rooting for your success in the new school year.
In honor of this occasion, please enjoy these photos of yesteryear’s college students! The pictures come from Flickr Commons, a place where museums worldwide share some of their best images. We have posted about this great resource in the past; it’s just a superb place to look for great public domain works. Explore the Commons to see thousands of pictures from the Smithsonian Institution, the New York Public Library, and others. And now… on to the students.
Ah, the days when drawing classes were gender segregated:
What if synchronized dancing was part of the SCAD curriculum…
…or faculty were required to wear robes?
Even back then, the library was THE place to be.
And don’t forget the importance of college sports.
Whatever you do, SCAD librarians are here to help you towards a bright and happy academic future!
Update 9/14: links have been added to the pictures so you can see the collections they come from.
