Each year Frosh Weekend gives
freshman women the opportunity
to gain experience in college com-
The purpose of Frosh Weekend
is three-fold: 1) To unite the
freshman class in a mutual rro-
Ject, promoting friendship and
cooperation among its members.
2) To teach students the funda-
mentals of committee work and
the art of working together. 3) To
acquaint first year students with
the League and its functions.
Frosh Weekend, as it is known
today, had its origin in the Fresh-
man Spread which was outmoded
in the early twenties.
The next freshman project was
a freshman pageant called "The
History of Music" which was giv-
en in 1924. This pageant was a
series of dances performed by
freshman coeds. The dances in-
cluded primitive, Grecian and
modern dance forms. This pa-
geant was given as entertainment
at the traditional Lantern Night.
This outdoor spectacle, performed
just before sundown, was con-
tinued for almost 10 years.
1933 found the campus laboring
under the depression.. Economic
necessity forced the freshman wo-
men to look for a new form of;
project which would make them
Coeds devised a women's date
night held after the Lantern
Night festivities. They provided
entertainment in the form of a
tap chorus, a waltz chorus and a
For the next two years, various
projects were tried. In 1934 an all
campus dance was held and in
1935 the freshman project took
the form of a Mardi Gras. There
was a musical floorshow, fortune
telling, dancing and the corona-
tion of a May queen, elected by
Tradition won out and in 1936
the freshmen returned to their
pageant of dances held in con-
junction with Lantern Night. The
freshman "Fiesta", as it was
named, was the first time the
pageant was made an all-campus
It was a humorous fantasy com-
posed of dialogue, dancing and
music. In 1937 nien were invited
for the first time.
Some variety was added in 1938
in the form of "Strawberry So-
cial" and "Hayseed Hc p", "Straw-
berry Social" was an old-fash-
ioned ice cream social held on the
lawn of the~ League with the
freshman coeds serving strawber-
The following year the fresh-
men sponsored a dance and pre-
sented a floor show. To insure a
good crowd, the ireshmen coeds
crganized a date bureau.
A similar dance was held in
1940 while the freshman "Project
Parade" was added to the even-
ing's events in 1941. This wasI
composed of a parade of women
representing housing units on
campus and was held at intermis-
The "Freshman Project" was
discontinued during the war years.
In 1948 the freshmen were
again united into a class project,
Frosh Weekend. This was the
brainchild of Panhellenic and As-
sembly Association who felt the
need for the freshmen to learn
the fundamentals of committee
work early in their college years.

Women who are working on the
properties and scenery commit-
tees, headed by Beverley Dunn
and Roxanne Peterson, have be-
come "jacks-of-all-trades." A
script calling for unusual props
and settings has made them work
extra hours devising these fea-
tures of the play.
The play was an outgrowth of
an idea by Mrs. Myra Jordon,
Dean of Women in 1904, that the
junior women should present a
skit in honor of the graduating
seniors. The first show, staged by
six coeds, was a skit which told
the story of "Buster Brown at

actual staging and directing of
the play are Jane Abeshouse, as-
sistant general chairman, Cathy
