Where’s my jacket? Two exhibitions, “From Banners to Beanies: School Spirit at UNCG” and “Class Jackets from the University Archives’ Textile Collection” are on display this month on Jackson Library’s first floor. As the exhibition explains, the tradition of class jackets made its debut at Woman’s College (now UNCG) in the late 1920s. The colors of the jackets corresponded with the rotating class colors; green, red, blue, and lavender. The distinctively colored Jackets were purchased during their sophomore year. On Jacket Day, all sophomores received their jackets, signifying their status as upperclassmen. The jackets were worn by the students for the remainder of their college days. By the mid-1970s, the tradition of the Class Jacket disappeared.

The awards were given on April 2 at the “Celebration of Print” in Concord.

Are you a survivor of an abusive relationship? Are you interested in telling your story? Help inform future research and mental health professionals on the possible stigma associated with abusive relationships (including physical, sexual, and/or emotional/psychological abuse) by participating in a research study investigating the impact stigma that battering survivors face. We are seeking female participants who (a) are at least 21 years of age, (b) were formerly abused by an intimate relationship partner (e.g., a boyfriend, life partner, spouse), (c) have been out of any abusive relationship for at least two years, and (d) speak English. Participants will be asked to participate in a one- to one-and-a-half hour interview about their experiences related to stigma and relationship abuse. All participants will receive a $10 gift card to Target upon completion of the interview. This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Boards at Antioch University New England in Keene, NH, and the UNCG. If you have any questions or are interested in participating in this study, contact Dr. Christine E. Murray (Counseling and Educational Development) at 334-3426 or cemurray@uncg.edu. Participants will be asked to complete a brief telephone screening to determine eligibility to participate in this study.

How does your garden grow Explore trends in gardening at UNCG on Friday, April 15, 2-4 p.m. in Room 217, Music Building. The Music Building is a short walk from the campus garden at 123 McIver Street where the program will conclude. In the Fall semester of 2010, students, faculty and staff broke ground on a new food garden at 123 McIver Street on the UNCG Campus. But food gardening on campus has a much longer history. Come celebrate and explore trends in gardening at UNCG. Carolyn Shankle will trace the history of community food gardening, from the war gardens of World War I, to the victory gardens of World War II, to the urban gardens of the 1970s, as captured in the pamphlets and photographs housed in the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives. Dr. Susan Andreatta, professor of Anthropology and co-director of the UNC Greensboro Gardens, will discuss the creation of the new garden and how it supports the campus move toward greater sustainability. Beth Filar Williams and Sarah Dorsey will demonstrate the University Libraries’ resources for “green” gardening in our current print and electronic collections. The event will conclude with a field trip to the UNC Greensboro Garden to see how the first crop is growing.
