A Visual History of Sturges: Sneak Peek

Hey, Scholars of Sturges! Next week’s post–our last of the semester!–is going to be an especially fun one (and hopefully an enjoyable respite from finals week): a visual history of Sturges Hall, and of the many things that have been housed within it! So today we thought we’d give you a sneak peek. Did you know that OWU used to have a home economics major and that Sturges was its home? Sturges Hall was renovated to house the Department of Home Economics in 1947. Subjects covered included cooking and sewing, and the department hosted an annual ‘style show’ followed by a tea party in the building as well! Think we should resuscitate this tradition?
