  • On this day 85 years ago, the first edition of the Sou'Wester student newspaper was published in 1934. Its first editor-in-chief, Raymond Duncan, wrote in its forward, "The staff wishes to express gratitude to all those who made it possible for the first issue of the Sou'wester to appear. It is an experiment in journalism, and we desire it to be an experiment that will work and continue working... Our aim is to make it a publication that will express properly the high ideals of Georgia Southwestern College and that will create in students an urge for all types of creditable writing." Included in this first issue were the upcoming graduation of 92 students, the election of a new student body president, a student gossip column, and ads for local businesses like Horne's Pharmacy and Wallis Electric Company.

    The Sou'Wester has been published continuously since it debuted in 1934. Pictured here are students enjoying the latest issue of the Sou'Wester outside the Campus Store, which was located in the back of the Wheatley Administration Building in 1950. #GSWHistory

  • Student organizations have a long history on GSW's campus. A number of groups are featured in the very first yearbook, "Le Resume," which was published in 1926 when GSW was known as Americus Normal College. One of those student groups, called "S and B," is pictured here in front of the Wheatley Administration Building.

    As noted in the yearbook, the 16-member group's motto was "love, laugh, live," their pastime was flirting, their sport was riding, their occupation was "dodging teachers," their hangout was the auditorium, their colors were yellow and pink, and their song was "Show Me the Way to Go Home." #GSWHistory
