Description: This May 5, 1960 article published in the Greensboro College student newspaper, The Collegian presents the results of a Greensboro College student poll regarding whether or not the school should integrate. The Greensboro College results were compared to similar polls that had recently been conducted at Wake Forest University and Duke University. Both Greensboro College and Duke University students advocated integration, while a slim majority of Wake Forest students preferred to remain segregated. The article also provides a breakdown by student class and gender of the Greensboro College poll.
