College and Campus Trivia
Baton, badminton, and this still-popular children’s activity were just a few of the sports women engaged in during the University’s early years.
What was the activity?
The University deemed these activities appropriate for female students because the women were able to participate while wearing long skirts. This photo, circa 1910, captured a physical training course; Foellinger Auditorium is visible in the background.
