Check out this gem from the 1960s, courtesy of the Digital Archives. We’re using the word “gem” as loosely as possible here, because just look at this room. Just look at it! The red vinyl curtains. Those wine bottles. The Confederate flags. The PANDA? (Okay, we like the panda.) This dorm room was part of Sergeant Hall, which was built in 1900 and demolished 75 years later. Sergeant Hall who? #TeamHillHouse
The University Archives are rife with amusing images that we like to share with you, dear readers. Please join us as we dissect how students used to live, in a feature we call “Dorm Living Throughout The Ages.”
1901, the Quad: Shit is eccentric! Check out the shoes nailed to the wall as decoration. And the letters hanging from the chandelier. And the pillows embroidered with Native American imagery. Fascinating.
