The Phillips Memorial Library is pleased to celebrate Thursday, September 17, 2015 as Constitution Day with a new Phillips Memorial Library exhibit.  Featuring a life-size replica of the Constitution, the exhibit highlights the formation of the Articles of Confederation, which led to drafting of the Constitution as we know it today.  

Exhibit Name: Freshman Now and Then
Dates: September 1, 2015 - December 1, 2015

Providence College welcomes the new Freshman Class of 2019. Back in the day, when Providence College was an all male school, Freshmen wore beanies and were required to remove them when meeting a Senior. At the end of the school year, an elaborate celebration was planned including the finale, the burning of the beanies!  Today's freshman have it so much easier!

Within the display are photographs, Parent's Day/Parent's Weekend programs, a 1967 beanie, and more.
