The Living History Program is sponsored by the Women's Studies Program and is currently in its seventeenth year. Each year the Living History Program recruits students to portray women in history at local elementary schools during Women's History and Awareness Month in March. Students are asked to research a woman of their choice, develop a 10-minute monologue, and help devise a costume. They may earn one credit hour if they choose but many students participate just for the experience.
