Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Athenian Literary Society was established in 1892 as one of two societies for students in the Preparatory Department as preparation for public speaking. It was a co-educational society that met regularly for programs of readings, recitations, essays, and debates. The Preparatory Department offered a one-year course of study for students at least 15 years of age from small Oregon communities to prepare for admission to the college.
