Virginia Wesleyan students' voice on politics, 1966-1978

Discussion of politics at Virginia Wesleyan has been a part of campus life from the beginning. Throughout the years, students and faculty have been engaged with current events in multiple ways. Nationally, this was a time when students debated civil rights, the war in Viet Nam and the draft, voting, and Watergate.  The presence of international politics, an active student body, the importance of the freedom of speech, and protests against apartheid characterize political discourse at Virginia Wesleyan from the years 1966 to 1978.
