Aftermath: A "New University"

New University outdoor class

Student lecturers held several "New University" courses outside, taking advantage of the summer weather.

As a way of expressing his solidarity with the student body in the aftermath of the "May Crisis," President Jerome allowed for the creation of a series of teach-ins taught by students, faculty, and members of the community. These classes at the "New University," held for free and without course credit, represented a truce between the revolutionary ideas of the student body and the administration's tolerant relationship with them.  

Occasionally held outside and encompassing a variety of topics from the intellectual to the bizarre, the "New University" drew ire from several parents and community members, but symbolized a renewed line of communication and calm end to a tumultuous chapter in BGSU's history.
