Old South Week was an event held each year by the fraternity Kappa Alpha. The male students emulated cavaliers of the antebellum period while the women dressed up in hooped skirts and dresses similar to the costumes in Gone with the Wind. They even went as far as holding mock slave auctions where fraternity pledges dressed up in black face to play the role of slaves. This event was finally moved off campus in (year) when African American students protested.

In 1889, William L. Mayo, a rouge educator from Kentucky, established this teacher training school for the area’s white farmers and their children with the mandate that “any person, of whatever age, wealth, or previous advantages” who desired a college education could have one, “regardless of their ability to pay” (Catalog, 1908).

From the beginning, as David Gold argues, “Mayo sought to make [the University] integral to the community” by providing local citizens with extensive rhetorical training (Gold 122).
