Colgate University Bookstore Staff photo
Colgate Bookstore in upstate New York is not what you’d expect from a University bookstore. The staff not only serves its Colgate University students and campus employees, but the store also is a fun place for the whole community. Yes, there are diploma frames and other normal college items available for students and alumni, but there’s so much more…

Covered Bridge Resonates with Messiah College Students, Alumni, & Staff

Messiah College Stoner BridgeA well-loved, much used way for students, alumni, staff, and others to get around Messiah College’s Pennsylvania campus is their own historic covered bridge, built in 1867. This iconic structure, unusual for a college campus is a popular image that graces two of their diploma frames.

Messiah College’s covered bridge, commonly called the Stoner Bridge (named in honor of Mr. & Mrs. Jacob S. Stoner who donated the bridge  to the college), but also known as the Bowmansdale Covered Bridge, is one of only a handful of covered bridges actually located on college campuses in the United States.

Birth of Black History Month and How the Legacy Lives On at Historically Black Colleges

By: Tyler Dickinson, Marketing Intern
In 1926, Carter G. Woodson started the concept of Black History Month. He was a historian and one of the first African Americans to earn a doctorate degree. Woodson dedicated the second week of February to observe African American History, the week that coincides Abraham Lincoln’s and Frederick Douglas’ birthdays. Woodson realized that the history of African Americans was not being represented adequately. He wrote The Journal of African American History a decade earlier, which he believed represented the African American experience accurately for the public. Woodson’s contributions led the USPS to issue a stamp honoring him in 1984.

Wabash College Still Has Sheepskin Diplomas and Other Interesting Info

Sheepskin diplomas are not prevalent at all, although they once were. Yet, for Wabash College in Indiana, the tradition of giving sheepskin diplomas to its graduates continues. This coming May will be no exception. At the college’s 176th Commencement ceremony last May, its 172 graduates received sheepskin diplomas, as always. The college also carries on its tradition as an all-male college.
