That’s So Last Century

In the seventies, IUP students assembled their class schedules from open course section lists scribbled on huge sheets of paper.

In the seventies, IUP students assembled their class schedules from open course section lists scribbled on huge sheets of paper and affixed to a gymnasium wall. As sections filled, the sheets were taken down, until eventually the wall was nearly empty. Today’s students register on their computers by accessing URSA (University Registration Scheduling Assistant).

Preceding and Proceeding

Historic Occasion

Homecoming at IUP, 1965

Officially, October 9, 1965, was the last Homecoming ever celebrated at Indiana State College. Within months, the college would become a university. Planners booked twenty-five bands from a ten-county area and twenty-six floats for the parade. Despite the rain, the Indiana Evening Gazette reported thirty-five thousand spectators lined the parade route. Unfortunately, in the football game these sodden souls were watching, Edinboro defeated ISC, 10-6. If you see a familiar face, Harrison Wick, IUP Special Collections librarian and university archivist, would like to hear from you. He’s also interested in acquiring IUP memorabilia, photographs, or scrapbooks. His e-mail is hwick@iup.edu.
