Eleanor Dare Taylor Kennedy (1925- ) is a member of the Class of 1945 at Woman's College of the University of North Carolina, now The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She majored in sociology. Kennedy recalls receiving a scholarship to attend Woman's College from a local Greensboro businessman, town student and dormitory life and participation in campus activities such as Town Students Association, Dikean Society and University Marshals. She describes her employment both on and off campus, the prestige of Woman's College and her opinion of its decline once the Consolidated University System of North Carolina was formed. She discusses the effects of World War II, integration and coeducation on the institution; the influence of the faculty, especially Mereb Mossman and Louise Alexander; the Alumni Association-Chancellor Moran controversy and the move to Division I athletics. She reiterated how grateful she is for her quality education and how it shaped her life.
