Elyse Grasser, vice president of History Club, served as "m.c." for the event and presented a narrative, as told to her by Mr. Ruggiero, about SFU students protesting the library's formal dress code in the 1970s. As Mr. Ruggiero told Elyse, "this was our Vietnam."
March 2012. In conjunction with the Cambria County Historical Society, History Club presented a “History Short,” consisting of readings of stories from Saint Francis University’s past.
