Abstract

Memorial University of Newfoundland, Newfoundland's seat of higher learning, was a dynamic institution filled with students eager to reap the benefits of a university education. While the history of universities in Canada is a much studied subject, the students who attended those universities are noticeably understudied. Students were by far the largest single group on any campus and were the recipients of each innovation and programme offered or designed by a university. Students' participation in the life of the university is the central focus of this thesis. This thesis examines the history of students ranging from while on the Parade Street Campus in 1949, through the granting of university status to Memorial University College, to 1961 when the university moved from downtown St. John's to the spacious Elizabeth Avenue Campus. Memorial's students during this period were active participants in the life of the university, as well as being active off campus.
