by Brigitte Galauner on 2021-02-19T10:00:00-05:00 in Using Pfeiffer Library | Comments

Have you ever wondered what university sports were like in the past?  We hope that this sports program and roster sheet from 1985 can give you a taste of what it looked like.  Tiffin University took great pride in their sports teams, and that has not changed today!  The following photographs showcase an official sports program from 1985 and a football team roster.  The purpose of the sports program was to introduce spectators to the university's sports teams.  It included photographs of the teams as well as game schedules for each sport.  Some of the pages even had entire rosters with more detailed information on each player.  Take a look at the photos below for more information about each page!

This is the front cover of Tiffin University's official sports program for the 1985 season.  It is also labeled a "souvenir program" meaning that it was likely given to spectators or sold at football games.  The program contained a score sheet so fans could track scores, group photographs of the sports teams, and statistics pertaining to each athlete.
