Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry when Oklahoma A&M College students set out in their surrey. While these young Oklahomans knew how to have a good time, they were always expected to observe "the customs of good society" and a Matriculation Pledge.
All misconduct was punishable under a strict system of demerits. Among the prohibitions for student conduct was the restriction on the “…use of any spirituous, or intoxicating liquors. Nor shall he upon any pretext visit any saloon or place of dissipation.” The students were also required to attend morning chapel exercises, be courteous at all times, and “heartily cooperate with the faculty to secure the objects for which the college was established.”
