Gerald R. Sherratt Library
Featurette
You may have noticed students walking through the library, looking around furtively, and then quickly rubbing the head of the bust of Gerald Sherratt and walking away. When the library first opened, students decided that rubbing the head of such a wise man would surely help with exams, so it became a tradition to give former President Sherratt a "noogie" before difficult tests or assignments. While some may find it some what disrespectful, Mayor Sherratt is very aware of the tradition and finds it a charming and fitting way for him to continue to contribute to campus.
