DRAMA STARTS THE YEAR Two students are kicked out for being together past the set hours. The Herald, Vol. LXXXV Jannary I0, 1964 No. 12 The Interfraternity Council is scorned. The Herald, Vol. LXXXV Jannary I0, 1964 No. 12
WHAT IS HAPPENING? In the year of 1964, Hobart and William Smith College students faced two dilemmas. These dilemmas led to mass criticisms of the student body using words such as “apathetic” and “unserious.” Through these criticisms, based on their situations, art was formed with a sense of retaliation.
INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL (IFC) IN TROUBLE and STUDENTS ANGRY ON RULES IFC charged with being “dysfunctional”. The Herald, Vol. LXXXV Friday 28, 1964 No. 16 A student is upset as to how the matter was dealt with. The Herald, Vol. LXXXV January 17, 1964 No. 13
CHANGES DEMANDED Apathy is demanded for the treatment of the case of the two students. The IFC is close to its end. The Herald,, Vol. LXXXV March 6, 1964 No. 17 The IFC surrenders to the wishes of the Board of Control (BOC). The Herald,, Vol. LXXXV March 6, 1964 No. 17
STUDENTS ATTACKED The Herald, February 14, 1964 An anonymous figure scolds HWS students. The Herald, Vol. LXXXV January 17, 1964 No. 13
STUDENT REACTIONS SEEN IN LITERATURE Students showed that they could be as frivolous as they pleased, seen in this story of a boy trying to get a girl, ending up with her, and having his teasing sister on a leash.

STUDENT REACTIONS SEEN IN LITERATURE (Top 2): The Ridge, Fall 1964 (Left): The Ridge, Spring 1964 Not only did the students create frivolous works, but they also created art that characterized the feeling of what being told to change constantly brought.
SO WHAT??? If a whole group is scolded for the actions and faults of a few indivuals, what are the consequences/reactions? People act differently to being criticized. If people recognized this, especially with teenagers, unnecessary changes to a person would not occur. The world would be a better place, and the year of 1964, at HWS Colleges, exemplifies the problem.
