North Central College Mini Research Projects

Every fall, students in Professor Ann Keating's HIST 200 class, History Methods, do a mini research project on some aspect of North Central College history. Students in the class vote on the best projects, and Professor Keating and the archivist determine which of those projects should be added to the archives website for scholarly reference.
