Students at the State Teachers College at Harrisonburg held regular class meetings in order to elect class representatives to the student government, electoral board, class offices, and leadership positions in athletics, among other positions. Classes collected quarterly dues and managed a small budget. Meetings were held at least once a month, and were often attended by members of the faculty, the Dean of Women and President Samuel P. Duke.
