The men who live in Vandercook Hall take much pride in the "homey" and friendly atmosphere of
their dormitory. This Dormitory was built in 1939 and over 200 men call it home each year. Vander-
cook hall differs from the other male residence halls in that it has no cafeteria facilitiesg a snack
bar serves the in-between snack needs
7 , instead.
N N The memorable evening get-togethers and
dormitory smokers are just as much a
part of Vandercook's social life as is its
closed formal dance, "Teepee Tango."
This year the men of Vandercook went
out and captured hrst place in the Home-
coming house displays with their version
of "Kismet" This is proof again that the
men of Vandercook stick together with
their cooperative spirit and attitude.
