A Look Back

A Fab Flashback

This semester, Arcadia’s “Global 1968” event series and undergraduate course examined the social and political shifts that transformed pop culture and intensified demands for racial, religious, and gender equality in the late 1960s.

Students also curated “Yearbook 1968/Student Life,” an exhibition that featured photographs, artifacts, and representations of campus life in 1968. The installation even replicated a Beaver College dorm room, complete with ’60s necessities: lava lamps, Bob Dylan records, and copies of Beaver News.
