Lights Out at 10 PM, OR ELSE: Dorm Life
Ruth Parker described some of the touches of dormitory life in 1913. While there are some enduring features of campus life at Mount Holyoke, students in 1913 were governed by strict rules and routines. The campus issued regulations that guided the day-to-day lives of students such as 10 PM bedtime, no men in residence halls, and daily physical exercise.
