Part 2. Windham College Student Body
The students at Windham College were mostly a carefree, peaceful group indicative of the collegiate mood around the country at that time. Yes, there were the occasional drunken brawls and lethal drug overdoses but no unfortunate lethal shootings of unruly, longhaired peace protesters by the National Guard like other places. There was that one little hostage taking incident in the fall of 1973 when a finger was shot off but we’re on a roll here so let’s continue to focus on the positive! But it wasn’t all peace and love. Exclusionary cliques formed among various groups
based on region of origin, fields of study and “other” interests. None were more vicious than
than those in the theatre department. A truly heinous and conniving cadre of individuals not above backstabbing and infighting amongst themselves. None were worse than some women vying for parts in plays.
"I wonder what Freud would think about all of this?"
Mostly, though, Windhamites were decent young people with only the occasional bad apple. But there was one so loud, so obnoxious, so convinced she was the center of the known universe (and possibly beyond) that she became
known as Putney Enemy Number One. It has been rumored over the years that she escaped to Southern California where apparently such individuals are hard to distinguish from one another.

At least we can all agree that there is absolutely no room now among Windham College survivors for anything that would divide our small and dwindling group of alumni!!! WE ARE ONE!!!
Rumors that Government snipers were stationed on the library roof in 1975 to take out criminal cafeteria tray sliders but were never given the "shoot order" because the school "President" at the time could not be sobered up for 72 hours have gone unsubstantiated.
The creators of this website willingly admit to the use of some plagiarized copy and unauthorized use of images. But like true Windhamites, we don't care! This site does not represent Windham College in any official capacity but considering there is no more Windham College, that might not be possible anyway! Its just for fun.
