This Day in Drexel History: January 11, 1980

January 11, 2010

At the beginning of winter quarter in 1980, multiple dorms were overbooked, leaving many students without rooms. Of the seventy students initially without housing, some commuted from home temporarily, while others were assigned to lounges in Van Ren, Kelly, Calhoun and the New Dorm (now Towers). Click the image below to read the full article from the Triangle and see a photo of the overflow housing in the New Dorm.
