Did you know Bryant women were not always allowed to wear pants in the library? In 1965 when the campus was still in Providence, the dress code allowed women to wear pants after 3pm in the dorms, but never in the library or any of the classrooms. Thankfully this rule changed in autumn 1969, and we’re happy to see all of you in whatever you choose to wear!

Did you know the sign at the campus entrance isn’t the original Bryant sign? The sign we have now was put up in 2004 when we changed our name from Bryant College to Bryant University. Check out the original sign from 1971 (with students posing on top):

There’s about a week left of summer night classes, and we hope everyone has a great rest of the summer! If you need any help with your end of semester projects (or if you just miss us), you can always stop in or IM us!
Are you traveling this summer? If you do, send us a postcard! We know you’ll have just as much style as these Bryant students and alumni in 1963, who went on a trip to 8 countries over 2 months (click the photo for more info):
Happy travels, good luck with your studies, and/or enjoy the summer, Bryant!
All your hard work has finally paid off, and you’re almost officially Bryant alumni now! Make sure you drop in and see the library one more time before you leave campus.
We’ve got some photos from past commencement ceremonies in our Digital Commons you can look to get ready for the ceremony—check out these pictures from 1945 and 1968:
