Then and Now: Phones


Way before cellphones, staying in touch was just as important, and the 1967 Hullabaloo yearbook caught this student having a phone booth moment. If this is you, or if you know who it is, let us know


When it comes to staying connected with family and friends, only the technology has changed. Today’s students use their phones to text, check social media, track lab experiments, order a meal or a ride, reserve a book at the library, apply for a job, and more. But just like 50 years ago, they also use them to simply talk, one voice to another.
