Celebrating 75 Years: What Salve Wore

From Salve Regina’s founding, its students have presented themselves as part of its community by what they wore. Tradition governed many of these garments in the early days, but even as the college evolved into a university, students have found ways to display their school pride. This display shows some of the garments that have helped create the Salve Regina identity over the past 75 years.

Display curator:  Genna Duplisea, Archivist and Special Collections Librarian  


1st Floor

Victorian Horror

The Victorian era spawned "sensation fiction" and built on the Gothic genre established in the late 18th-century. Many classic monsters and horror stories originated in this period, and it has continued to inspire writers exploring fear through ghosts, science, and the body.
