description
Maryann Ferguson ('60), Jean Kraus ('59), Anne Patterson ('60), and Judy Peterson ('60) join together virtually via Zoom to reminisce about their time at Wake Forest University. While all had similar experiences, each was involved in a different area of campus life, making this a comprehensive interview about the status of women at the University at the time. Despite living in different places, these women have maintained a lasting friendship for over sixty years. The interview ranges from serious conversations about why Wake Forest was the best fit for them academically to the pranks they played on one another while living on the same hall. They also speak briefly about the dance ban on campus and the various rules and regulations that were in place for female students. The women also recall panty raids, lively parties, and their involvement in various societies.
