Come Wi Go Down Memory Lane: A Letter From Priscilla

“Come Wi Go Down Memory Lane”, let us journey through time to the University College of the West Indies in 1956. Wouldn’t you like to know what campus life was like back then? Thanks to Priscilla, we are given a sneak peek through a letter she wrote to Mattie in the Pelican. Vivaciously, she informs Mattie of the entertainment scene on campus and the various activities young intellectuals engaged in to relieve themselves of the academic tensions of University life.


Some artifacts have particularly rich potential as research resources. At the UWI Museum, one close to our hearts is the Pelican magazine – a student production of the 1950s – 1970s that is jam-packed with contemporaneous reports on student life inside the young university, starting with its years as the University College of the West Indies (UCWI).
