Comments

The two-year course of study in Household Arts required students to take classes in the sciences, including chemistry, physics, and biology, as well as dietetics, laundering, and cooking, canning and preserving. Students even grew their own food in a garden. The cooking program was so well received that organizations often scheduled meetings at the college to take advantage of the refreshments it prepared and served.
