Becoming a campus resident at age 62

SlateIna_Portrait1935

On Sept. 10, 1935, 62-year-old Ina Kronk Slate registered for her senior year at Goshen College. Already a familiar figure on campus, this doyenne of Goshen civic society had served GC as instructor for public school art from 1916-1923, and possibly had designed the first college seal. In the summer of 1933, Slate had decided to begin full-time studies as a GC student.
