In November 1928, just three months after Brothers College opened its doors to students, the first issue of The Acorn shipped from the presses to the Drew community. Eighty-five years have passed, and Drew University’s newspaper continues to record and reflect upon the thoughts and activities of the student body. This exhibit showcases a selection of Acorn issues that reveal a community of students responding to an ever-changing world. Curated by Matthew Beland, University Archivist, in consultation with the editor of The Acorn.This Drew University Library exhibit in the Methodist Center Lobby will run from October 3 through November 4.
An opening reception will be hosted by the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations on Friday, October 4, 6-7:30 p.m.
