In 1962 social dancing was finally allowed on Luther's campus. The first ever college dance was the 1962 Homecoming Ball in October. The controversial change was completed between President Ylvisaker’s resignation and the naming of the next President. Though dancing was still seen as inappropriate for a college of the church, many faculty, staff and students opposed the ban. This image shows a dance from 1969.
