"I think COD is great. I am so glad that it's still here; it has grown along with the world. I feel honored to be part of the history around here. A lot of people ask me “Barbara, do you remember the night when Frank Sinatra was in the gymnasium at a concert drinking wine and the college president was not happy about it?" There are so many fun things to remember."

Barbara Keedy Eastes, Class of 1965, reflects on COD Beginnings.
