Meet the Participants

The 1968 Bursar’s Office Takeover was successful due to the courageous acts of Northwestern University students. To learn more about these individuals, here is a list of the names, graduation years, degrees (from Northwestern University), and photographs of the Takeover participants. This information is derived from Syllabus yearbooks and commencement programs, both unofficial records. Biographies of some of the Takeover participants will be added soon. The photos are available courtesy of Syllabus Yearbook, unless otherwise noted.
