Welcome Hopkins Class of 2016!

We had an absolute blast the other week showing off all sorts of classy and odd Special Collections material to freshman, including poetry printed on pasta!  In particular, one of our favorite moments involved astrology, an iPod, and a 19th century horoscope (pretty mysterious, eh?), though the unexpected student reading of a German book that had the whiff of toilet humor upon it was pretty awesome as well!
