In this episode of Her Hilltop High, University Archivist Meg Mason tells us about past first year student traditions. This includes wearing beanies to identify yourself and sometimes getting salt thrown at you.  


The first episode of Her Hilltop High starts at the very beginning of Syracuse University in 1870. We'll look at many beginnings: The first building on campus, the first football game, and the first times the chimes rang from Crouse College.
