In 1974, there was no GHC . . . But Floyd Junior College did exist.  The Rome campus was the only campus affiliated with the college and miniscule in size. Student enrollment barely topped 1,000 . . . a far cry from the five campuses, and over 5,000 students currently attending Georgia Highlands College in 2014.  Back then, college-age Americans were concerned about a major political scandal called Watergate, involving the President of the United States, as well as the Energy Crisis, Inflation, and U.S. disengagement from a costly war in Vietnam that had been going on for nearly a decade.  Today,  college-age Americans are still concerned about high energy prices and U.S. foreign policy, as well as a host of other issues that were not even germane to the Baby Boomers of the Seventies.  Let's take a walk down memory lane, through one of only two yearbooks ever printed in the history of the college.
