Typing is Hard

Well, Rhody readers, you guys are funny. And smart. And creative. And apparently, many of you remember taking (or maybe wishing you’d taken?) your high school typing class—that was an overwhelmingly recurring theme in the caption ideas you submitted.

This photo from the URI archives is from a folder dated 1970–1993. A note indicates that another photo with students using a similar typewriter is from 1982. That’s it. That’s all we know.

We can’t help loving that our winning caption wouldn’t be funny anywhere but here at URI (well, except maybe at another school with a building called Peck Hall).
