September 11, 1972
The first class assembled in Room 218 for the first Professional Seminar (know affectionately as Pro Sem). This class meeting, however, had been preceded by a three-day retreat with faculty, students, and consultants from the Social Problems Research Institute, held Sept. 6-8 at the Kanuga Retreat Center in North Carolina. The retreat and the Professional Seminar were hallmarks of the "different kind" of educational experience and relationships with students that the College became noted for throughout library education.
