Sangamon State University
Abstract:Hasara, former state legislator and Mayor of Springfield, was the second person to register for classes at the newly created Sangamon State University in 1970, working for a Psychology degree and a teaching certificate to obtain her goal of becoming a teacher. Class credits were in quarters, grades were only pass/fail, classes were small (10-20), professors were cooperative, and the atmosphere was casual and easy going. She attended a class on Women’s Liberation and two of her professors were Judy Everson and Jackie Jackson. Karen returned for a legal studies degree in the early 90s and saw many changes at SSU from the early days. Interview by Drinda O'Connor, 2009. 26 min., 9 pp.
