WSU offers sesquicentennial calendar (09/16/2007)
As Winona State University celebrates its sesquicentennial; WSU announces the availability of a 17-month, sesquicentennial themed calendar.

The calendar features daily historical trivia, vintage photographs and listings of major sesquicentennial events.

Sesquicentennial coordinator Beth Halleck describes the trivia as, "everything from the purely academic to amusingly social."

An example of the calendar's trivia, dating back to Sept. 7, 1938, reads: "Early this morning, police foiled an attempt to steal registration money from a safe in Somsen Hall. Patrolmen investigating a year-old robbery happened upon a group of nefarious men. Shots are fired at the men during the chase, but they escaped."

WSU alumnus, Cody Mathers, researched all trivia.

Major events featured range from April's gala week to annual WSU events like the theatre and dance department's children's show.

The calendar retails for $2.50 and is available at WSU's bookstore, located in Kryzsko Commons. Bookstore hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

WSU's Sesquicentennial kicks off with a picnic Saturday, Sept. 29, at 11:15 a.m. in WSU's Courtyard. There will be live music, free food and entertainment.

For more information on purchasing the sesquicentennial calendar, call the bookstore at

(507) 457-5319. For more information on WSU's sesquicentennial e-mail Beth Halleck at: Bhalleck@winona.edu.
