The United States did not enter World War I until 1917, but many of the young men from Saint Joseph’s College were ready to serve and make the ultimate sacrifice for their country. This Archives
and Special Collections exhibit relates some of their stories in the words of their contemporaries and letters home from the front. It also examines the brief history of the Student Army Training Corps (S.A.T.C.), the forerunner of today’s Reserve Officer Training Corps (R.O.T.C.) program, when the college was
located at 17th and Stiles Streets
The exhibit is located on the 2nd floor of the Francis A. Drexel Library and will run through January of 2016.
