This silent raw footage captures student life at Austin College. Founded in 1849, Austin College is a private liberal arts school located about 60 miles north of Dallas in Sherman, Texas. The film begins with academics, showing students attending various classes. Next, it moves to social activities, featuring trips to Lake Texoma, dating, and pep rallies. Next, the film segues into Greek and dorm life, highlighting the homecoming parade and dance (both of which adopt an appropriative Mexican theme). The film ends with ceremonies, capturing the crowning of Homecoming queen and graduation festivities.
