The images below are from the 1926-1927 Hand Book of East Carolina Teachers College. Of particular interest in the handbook are the Social Regulations. A portion of these regulations are listed below.
1. Calling hours are from 3:30 to 5:45 p.m. on week days; on Sundays from 4:00 to 5:45 p.m.; in evenings from 8:00 to 10:15 p.m.
2. Students who expect company on Sunday (relatives or friends) must file their own names and room number, and the names of the people who are to come. These must be filed not later than Saturday.
3. When a student wishes to go calling, she must sign her name, the name and address of the person upon whom she wishes to call, and file in the office of the Lady Principal not later than 1:45 p.m. on the day she wishes to call. If she hears nothing further from the Lady Principal, it is understood that her request is granted.
4. After public entertainments students may converse with guests, but must bid them good night before leaving the Administration Building.
5. Students must not dine at restaurants, go to any office or to the rail road station without special permission from the Lady Principal.
6. Students may speak to young men on the street, but not carry on an extended conversation with them, or walk with them.
7. Students must wear hats when shopping or calling.
These handbooks were originally printed by the YWCA and are quite small, measuring 4 3/4″ x 3″. Some hyperlinked footnotes have been added to aid the reader.
The Student Handbook is available for researchers to use in the library in the North Carolina Collection, call number Joyner NC Reference LD1741 E44 A15x, and in the University Archives.
