At this site there are two main options:
(1) Read the memoirs of an erstwhile girl (me) who started college in 1962, or
(2) Read and write news for your community on a free local newsboard. (Currently disabled)
For Option (1), go to the LETTERS HOME page. It is (or will be, as I get them entered) 30 years of letters home, starting when I went off to Penn State in 1962. Do you remember when students smoked in the classroom? When there were phones in the dorm hallways? When computers barely existed? When long distance was expensive? Then you can relate.
For Option (2), select one of the registered communities to see what others have written:
If your community isn't listed, you yourself can start it by registering. The community name will be created from your REGISTER page.
P.S. - If you're looking for a poufy newsboy cap, you might try hafahat.com.
