Dormitories .. .
Two main types of University
housing are open to freshmen wom-
en-dormitories and University-
owned cooperatives.
Choosing the right one is the
first major problem that faces
most- incomers to the University
and the campus housing planners
have tried to provide enough vari-
ety to satisfy every woman.
Coeds have 12 dormitories to
choose from, ranging in size from
100 residents to the largest, which
houses over 400 women.
The ones housing 100 undergrad-
uate women each, Helen Newberry
land Betsy Barbour dormitories,
stand next to each other on State
Street, opposite Angell Hall.
On Observatory Hill, a few blocks
from the main part of campus, are
the largest women's dormitories.
Stockwell Hall, on the corner of

space for 400 women. Next to it,

'U' Building
President Hatcher
Eighth Executive
To Occupy House
Home of seven or eight Univer-
sity presidents, and credited with
being the oldest building on cam-
pus, the president's home on South
University has had a long and
dignified tradition.
It was built in 1850, on the ori-
ginal 40 acres which comprised the
campus and was one of five houses
costing $45,00, an extravagant
sum to many in those days. The
five buildings were known as fa-
culty houses, and all but one has
been torn down to make way for
expanding classroom needs.
Widow's Walk'
Designed by an eastern archi-
tect, the house resembles the style
popular in that region in the
1800's. The "Widow's. Walk," a
small fenced area on the roof of
the house, was built for the sailor's
wife who anxiously awaited the
first glimpse of her husband'sehip
as he returned from sea.
Now painted white and trimmed

repairmen and yardmen to keep
