You will automatically have base graphics and lattice graphics 
installed, so you could use those.  They are very different from ggplot2 
(and from each other) so it won't be painless.

Or you could install an old version of ggplot2: R 2.15.3 came out in 
March 2013, so presumably some version of ggplot2 like (which 
also came out that month) would work with it.

But the easiest thing might be to install a newer R version.  You'll 
find very little support for 2.15.3 nowadays.
