Shirley Criscione shares her student experiences as one of the first graduates of Scarborough College in 1968. Shirley highlights how the campus culture was during those years, particularly the impact of having such a small student body (totalling less than 200 students). The campus community was tight knit, where “everybody knew everybody.” Shirley also recalls how larger society was reflected on campus, particularly the roles that women took, the demographics of the student body, what students were expected to wear, and even the normalcy of smoking at the time.
