Syracuse University1904 Reception Booklet,freshmen,sophomores,odd Cartoon,orange

This appears to be a booklet that the sophomore class at Syracuse University had made for a reception for freshman, in probably 1904. It's only a few papers and not very large but it sure has that Syracuse pennant with the big S in the familiar orange triangle. The activities are interesting especially the toasts and topics like, "What can we do for our Alma Mater?" The students just arrived days before! The script is ornate, the various organizers and class officers are cited and despite the quaintness, there is the polite, refreshing formality. The first dormitories at SU were built in 1900 and 1904 so the campus was expanding when this reception was held. The first graduating class, unknown year, had FIVE students, four men and one women. All these private schools had very small numbers compared to the present. This is an interesting item that is almost 110 years old. The print is good, minor stains on the cover but overall a gem I think. With all the many thousands of SU graduates let me know if you are one. Syracuse was one of the most liberally minded schools in the country in admissions over a century ago with men and women in roughly equal numbers and attending the same classes. The admittance also reportedly saw race and religion as not obstacles for admission.
