Throwback Thursday: Revisited Debate and Reminder

NOVA Alexandria students have always been a passionate bunch. You need only take a look through the archives of student publications to understand how engaged our campus has always been in the big issues of the community, the state, and the nation. 

Take this example of the editorial page from the October 1st, 1968. Two students express very different opinions on the Democratic National Convention, and the role of the United States in the Vietnam War. 

Reading material like this is a fascinating snapshot into a very turbulent but important time in our nation’s history. You can find more of this material by going to the library homepage and clicking on the NOVAHistory Collections. The collection is very user friendly, as the items in this database are searchable by campus, item type, and by keyword. 

Don’t forget to attend the Frederick Downs’ book event. The author will be giving a lecture on his own Vietnam experiences today at 3:30pm in Bisdorf AA 196.
