Join us in celebrating the work of Prof. Bruno’s First Year Seminar, “Before Carlisle: Illuminating the Native American Histories of our Community”. Walking through the borough of Carlisle, visitors are met with numerous markers, plaques, and buildings that commemorate and educate the public about the people and events that shaped the community’s Euro-American history. The history of the Native American communities who lived in this area for over 15,000 years, however, is practically non-existent. Students in this course conducted research into an aspect of Native American life during one of five periods identified by archeologists and have created posters to present their findings. A reception for this exhibit will be held January 24th, at 4:30.

Have you ever heard about the number of times the Mermaid was "kidnapped" and wondered how the tradition began? Or about the many pranks during Homecoming weekend? From the moment you stem onto the Dickinson campus, you hear stories about student pranks. During the first half of the twentieth century, The Dickinsonian was filled with articles about the disappearance of the mermaid, homecoming pranks and the College Presidents' stolen belongings.
