    Introduction

    The Collegiate Seminar Program, informally known as Strawberry Creek College, was first proposed in 1973 and began in 1974. It was to provide an alternative form of education for undergraduates, with emphasis on discussion participation and in-depth writing on contemporary topics in problem oriented seminars. The program was canceled in 1980 for a variety of reasons, mainly relating to lack of continuity and growth and the perception that similar goals could reach a wider number of students by modifying existing programs.
