College wit and humor
Found in 11 Collections and/or Records:
The collection consists of a cartoon of campus titled "M.S.U. Expansion Program" by Phil Frank, April 7, 1965. It shows a caricature of campus buildings and places. It appears to be an original drawing in a mat.
The Bubble contained short articles, poems, and notices of events around campus. There was substance to the articles, though their tone was often satirical or humorous. There were observations of lectures, books, and the evils of smoking. The publication also took great joy in insulting neighboring communities. After Burton graduated The Bubble ceased to exist. It would be 13 more years before another student publication appeared on campus.
The collection contains two 1982 issues of the The Spartan Rag, a satirical magazine about campus life and news. The March issue contains articles protesting Michigan State University's disbandment of the no-preference college. Each issue includes cartoons about campus life and politics.
