Among the items that will be on display are photographs of convict laborers beginning construction of Sanford Stadium in the 1920s and a crocheted replica of a prison cell made by an inmate on death row in the 1990s.

Reading Day

Reading Days: These days have been designated by the University Council to provide time for students to prepare for final examinations. No mandatory assignments are to be scheduled for completion during reading days -- either for course work or extra-curricular or co-curricular activities. Exceptions for good cause can be made to this policy by the Vice President for Instruction. Nothing in this policy limits an instructor from scheduling optional study reviews for students during reading days.
