Fact or Fiction?
While streaking was an epidemic among college campuses throughout the United States in the early to mid 1970s, Winthrop was largely spared.
In fact in March of 1974, several incidents of streaking were reported on Winthrop’s campus. These episodes coincided with Winthrop’s attempts to become a fully coeducational institution and some state legislatures attempted to use them to block Winthrop’s efforts. Fortunately for Winthrop the streaking craze subsided and the coeducational bill was passed later in the year.
