Nine Westbrook Junior College students stand and kneel in front of a Christmas tree in this black and white candid snapshot with 1958 printed in red pencil on the back and 58 in blue ink on the front. Four of the young women stand and five kneel on the floor in front of them. They all wear shorts or slacks and sweaters or sweat shirts. The center kneeler holds a trophy.
On the basement wall behind the Christmas tree are banners and pennants for URI, RPI, CGA and Colgate. To the left of the tree is a windsor chair and to the right is a bench topped with file boxes.
