Speak Up: It's Leap Year!, Lynn E. Niedermeier Aug 2007

Speak Up: It's Leap Year!, Lynn E. Niedermeier

Lynn E. Niedermeier

The legend that on leap year day (February 29) a man was obligated to accept a woman's proposal of marriage dates back many generations. At WKU, the tradition translated into Leap Year Dances and teas, to which women students invited the young men of their choice. The introduction of Sadie Hawkins Day, inspired by the comic strip "L'il Abner," gave a new and lively twist to this female prerogative.


Wku And The Pleasant J. Potter College: A Shared Heritage, Lynn E. Niedermeier Jul 2007

Wku And The Pleasant J. Potter College: A Shared Heritage, Lynn E. Niedermeier

Lynn E. Niedermeier

Opened in 1889, the Pleasant J. Potter College for Young Ladies was the first occupant of “the Hill” that is now home to Western Kentucky University. Day and boarding students pursued a liberal arts curriculum at this fashionable private school. Down the hill on College Street, at Henry Hardin Cherry’s Western Kentucky State Normal School (chartered in 1906), students often came from more humble backgrounds to study in a coeducational setting. Nevertheless, when Potter College closed in 1909 and WKU purchased its property, it absorbed some of the traditions of the young ladies’ college it replaced.
