,ties.
Together the addition, termed
East Couzens and $ the original

vide housing for 536 coeds.
Doubles;, Triples and Quads
The new. rooms are mostly
doubles with a few triples and
quads. Furnished with bunk beds,
d dressers which are built together,
desks with overhead lighting and
gayly covered easy. chairs, the
rooms look compact and modern,
yet comfortable.
Book shelves are built in and
the residents number among their
favorite fixtures, the double length
# mirrors, the picture windows and
the 'double length closets with slid-
ing doors.
r West Couzens' Construction

Spring vacation is the snack bar
which will resemble South Quad's
"Club 600" and will serve coeds
from all of the dorms on the hill.
Complaints of residents concern-
ing the buzzer system are being,
investigated, and a new trunk line
has recently been added 'to the
'phone system.
With the additional lounge in
the new part, Couzens has a total
of four lounges: In the "Pillar
Room" as it has been named by
long time residents, a television

set attracts coeds throughout the
day and night.
The main lounge contains the
dorm's newly purchased hi-f i set,
while the third lounge in West
Couzens ht3s been ref urnished by
School of Nursing Alumni.
The new lounge is a rectangular,
well lit room, with picture win-
dows and modern furniture.
Dining room and cafeteria f a-
cilities seem to be appreciatedl
more than any other single factor
by the majority of students since

in the past, meals were not pro-
vided for residents,
Seating 440, the dining room is
located on the ground floor of the
building. A view of the other
dorms on the hill and Palmer
Field can be seen through the
windows which make up an entire
wall of the room.
Although two cafeteria lines are
utilized, students eat together in
the spacious dining room, which
many persons consider the largest
on campus.
