Studious Students: Nina Babcock and Elizabeth K . Davis

What did the average student's schedule look like in 1920? Though students didn't have as much freedom as we have today in choosing their classes, Nina Babcock still maintains an interesting variety of classes on her schedule, very similar to the variety that most of us seek while forming our own class schedules. It seems that Physiology and Chemistry dominate her schedule, with Math, Art, and Voice taking on a relatively minor role in her life during this semester. 

Elizabeth K. Davis' hand-written class notes may be something not all of us can relate to in this technological era, but the content is similar to what we learn today in introductory courses. Her Sociology notes (which appear to be taken on the first day of class) detail what sociology is and its relevancy in relation to other sciences, while her English notes offer definitions for commonly used figures of speech.
