Academic history[edit]

  • History
    • Curriculum: first, in "the class of the languages" (Horace, Cicero, Xenophon, Homer, Longinus, "Greek and Roman Antiquities," geography, and algebra); then in "the mathematical class" (more algebra, Euclid, practical geometry, natural philosophy, rhetoric, and history); and finally in "the philosophic class" (logic, moral philosophy, metaphysics, and a review of the previous classes). fouth year was supposed to be further study of one of these branches. this was designed to match the best eastern colleges. Modern languages in 1834. English lit in 1840s.[1]
    • Brown:established the physical and intellectual nature of Jefferson College, which was to continue with little change until the union with Washington in 1865, The gradually scientific direction of the curriculum, the less academic and more social activities of the student body, fluctuations in the number of students and in financial status of the school could all be attributed in part to events which affected the entire nation and influenced its intellectual climate of opinion[citation needed]
    • Science development from History[citation needed]
    • Academies[citation needed]
    • Prep departments, science departments, [citation needed]
    • admission standards in 1832 were :"Freshmen on entrance must be able to read Caesar, Sallust and Virgil, must have a thorough understanding of Latin grammar and acquaintance with Greek, and the simpler rules of arithmetic."



  • Banjo Club
  • One of the oldest: Buskin Club. Tragedy resembling a Greek drama. founded 1904. all kinds of productions. the Pennsylvania College for Women—now Chatham College. In 1974, meged with Student Experimental Theater to form the only theater group
  • Campus club: 1937. non-frats. like a fraternity but not secret. held intramurals and did dances


  • Chatham College and Carnegie Tech. Chatham College was the sister school.


  • "the College Gazette (published by the Literary Society) in 1866 to the Repertoire (which took over from the Gazette) in 1875 to the Washington- Jeffersonian (a literary magazine that also published campus news) in 1877."
  • Pandora "It was first published in 1886 by the junior class. The first issue covered the Class of 1885 and until 1962 the issues were dated according to the graduation year of the junior"
  • Literary Magazine: "In the 1920s, a humorous literary magazine, Wag Jag, was created. It lasted only one year, but we have no information on why. In the mid-1930s, the Gambolier was published. It struggled for several years, but eventually found success as a quarterly publication featuring book reviews, short stories, photos, memoirs, and more. It was finally suspended in 1943 because of a decrease in contributors due to WWII. In 1949, The Wall was published as the product of a creative writing class. By its second year of existence, it became the College’s official literary magazine. It ended in 1966, but we again have no information on why. The Washington & Jefferson Literary Journal started in 1966 and lasted for six years. It was quickly followed by the Arbitrarium in 1973, The Seventh Day Review in 1974, and Expresso in 1984. The Wooden Tooth Review is the current W&J student literary magazine"
  • "When President Tori Haring-Smith started her presidency in January 2005, she relates that she was often perplexed by why alumni would sign their letters to her “Whichi Coax” instead of “Sincerely.” Then the Class of 1955 spontaneously shouted it at Commencement in May 2005."

[4] Washington's birthday was a major campus holiday. celebrated through most of the 19th century. "On that day, masked students on horseback rode through the streets of Washington, singing and shouting all afternoon long. At dusk, the riders would be invited into neighborhood houses. Later, the celebration of the holiday took the form of a parade through town. In the morning, the classrooms were filled with pranks, jokes, and parodies while in the evening the literary societies opened their exercises to the ladies of the town."

  • Ugly Man Contest, Alpha Phi Omega. Started 1958


  • College seal in Old Main—"current W&J student stepped on the seal he or she would not graduate. In a March 1938 issue of the Red & Black, an article discussed the MacMillan Forum, a group of unknown origin on campus. The group felt that the College seal that was inlaid in the rotunda floor of Old Main was not an object of respect and, in order to make it such an object, felt that W&J students should not step upon the seal. Perhaps this group helped originate the tradition."
  • Snake Dance: "half-dressed freshmen holding hands and marching through town, ending the evening with a serenade on the lawn of the President’s house." They could retreive thei rpants after the event.[6]
