Most memorable Keystone moment:
There were so many. George McGovern and the Presidential election of 1972, Watergate, the end of the Viet Nam war, changing seasons on campus, watching the wrestling team, student government elections, applying for transfer to four year schools, the plays in the "experimental" theater, George Winterstein, Professor Abe Bernstein, Professor David Brahinsky, the ski trip to Vermont, Keystone's first interdisciplinary course "Water ," Professor Cupillari landing a telescope on campus, making lifelong friends, Keystone changed my life.
