Farmington State Normal School General Rules, c. 1924

Farmington State Normal School General Rules, c. 1924

Item 68357 info
Mantor Library at UMF

F.S.N.S. students were expected to abide by the school's rules and follow accepted social convention of the time. To aid them, the school provided students with a copy of the General Rules originally established in 1919, that outlined unacceptable and expected behaviors during the school day and while in the residence hall. A description of student government is also included.

The first student council was formed in 1921. It was established by Principal W.G. Mallett in a effort to enlist students cooperation in dealing with rule-breaking and other student issues.
