Did you ever attend Magdalen College?

At this time, man with black hat is looking for former students of Magdalen College of Warner, New Hampshire.

By 2010, the college had undergone a process of reform to shed its image of severity, and was renamed The College of Saint Mary Magdalen. We are interested in clarifying a number of rumors that emerged about the institution over the years, through the means of a personal account of academic and student life before the transformation.

Our narrator should be able to confirm their having attended the college and received a degree, and provide a story of 500 to 1000 words. We are particularly interested in what was at the time, a policy of standing in loco parentis, through close supervision of students' dress, manners, behavior, and (drumroll, please!) social interaction. Names would be changed to avoid detraction, except where one's association with the institution is prominent enough to render anonymity impossible. Needless to say, the identity of the narrator will be kept anonymous.

We have no interest in doing any harm to the College as it is presently constituted, nor to any of its administration, faculty, staff, and more important, students and alumni. Our only interest is in the truth, so as to distinguish it from falsehood. This should not be cause for objection, don't you think?

Or don't you?
