The 1920s has been called the Decade of Change: women received the right to vote, automobiles became affordable, and both skirts and women’s hair got shorter.  These changes also affected student behavior on Normal Hill, despite rules put in place by college president Victor L. Roy.   

Please join us at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum as Debbie Dietrich-Smith, Chief of Historic Landscapes at NCPPT, introduces you to some of the misbehaving students who attended Louisiana State Normal School (today known as NSU) in the 1920s. Their stories, often hilarious, are captured in correspondence between the college president and parents of the misbehaving students.  

Visitors are welcomed to bring their lunch and eat during the presentation.

Free and open to the public.
