Mary Wilkins describes her experience as one of the first cohort of students to graduate from the Ohio State University Lima Campus, in 1969. Wilkins, who was raising a son at the time, decided to go to college since the then-new campus was conveniently located near where she lived and because she thought it would be an exciting challenge. She describes her experiences in classes, her student teaching experience, and the experience of graduation, in 1969. At the time of this interview, Wilkins, 88 years old, still volunteered twice a week at an after-school program at Westside United Methodist Church in Lima.
Interview conducted at The Ohio State University at Lima Library, Lima, Ohio.
