    Most dances were held in the power house, but I attended a square dance in the Associates Building living room in 1964. In those days, student nurses were forbidden to marry until graduation. Beginners who worked as waitresses in the main dining room had to “remember” what each diner at her tables had ordered — they were not allowed to write down orders on note pads. The menus were long, and customers were often impressed when the nurse-to-be would return with everyone’s order exactly correct, proving Mind never forgets.

    You scored me 18/19 – but you didn’t count my “Try Agains!”
    Nice Job

    Fun game and informative. Could you please explain “WHEN DID THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE NURSING ARTS TRAINING BEGIN AT THE BA?” because Christian Science nurses have been training at the BA since long before 2002. Thanks!

    • pwoodsum says:

      Thank you for your question. You are correct, Christian Science nurses training has been going on since the early 1920’s. Christian Science Nursing Arts is the name of the program and curriculum that was adopted in 2002 and has continued as the BA’s Christian Science nurses training program. It is offered to the Field at the BA as well as other locations. More specifics about that program are on our website at Christian Science Nurses Training School.

  5. What fun! and how informative.

    Thanks for the quiz! It was fun and instructive.

    I remember attending a square dance in the Carriage House in the early 1980s. I guess that question had multiple right answers.

  10. CQ says:

    It was fun knowing half the answers and learning the other half and receiving an “expert” score despite the try agains!

    I played tennis on the B.A.’s courts in the early 1970s when working at The Mother Church one summer between college years and again for a short time right after graduation. I’ve also stayed at the B.A. as a guest before association.

    My most treasured memories, though, are of the days and nights I spent at the B.A. in 2008, when my mom received tender loving care from at least 15 different nurses. Their kindnesses are locked in my heart, as are their first names, which I wrote down at the time and recently ran across (to my great delight) in my B.A. file.

    Thank you for posting this fun and fine quiz. I worked at Pleasant View as a high school student in the housekeeping department and cleaned the rooms for residents. Each one of them was a delight to converse with. I learned what sincere students of Christian Science were like. I also gained respect for Mrs. Eddy’s practical loving care for all students of Christian Science.
