Exhibit on College History continues through September

 

Geneseo's "Old Main" in the 1870s

Whether you’re new to the campus or just returning after a summer’s absence, get yourself into Milne Library and experience the exhibit “From Normal to Extraordinary: Geneseo’s Proud Tradition of Educating Educators” before it leaves at the end of September. The Milne Gallery is lined with framed photographs, maps and other visual gems from the College Archives and elsewhere, chronicling highlights of SUNY Geneseo’s evolution from normal school to state teachers college to premier public liberal arts college.

The exhibit extends to the Milne Lobby display cases, where various artifacts relating to the history of the College are on view, including early yearbooks, flyers, more photographs and a gown worn by a graduate at the 1903 Geneseo Normal School commencement.

As in previous years, the timing of the College history exhibit is intended to coincide with the summer class reunions, but this year Milne has extended its run so that students and faculty have an opportunity to view and place themselves in this unique historical context.
