Spring 2015: Radical WashU is created. "This website contains a selection of materials from the university’s archives including ephemera and political material from groups such as the Association of Black Collegians, Students for a Democratic Society, and the Student-Worker Alliance."
April 2015: An email entitled Prepare to be Disoriented found it's way into campus email boxes across the university. Check it out here.
May 2015: Students and staff handed out the disorientation guide below at Commencement. When students went into Brookings Quad to pass them out, administration and police told students the could not be inside the Quad. Since the guide was designed to mimic WUSTL programs, guests lined up for a copy as they entered the quad. Close to a thousand copies were handed out.
August 2015: Students, staff and faculty from across the University meet towards the end of the Spring '15 semester. The group develop the starting content of this website.
