Dorm life Images


I love this image, which appears in our Dormlife Scrapbook, both because of the Mod Squad kind of feel and because of the liberal use of posters to line the walls. The occupant of the room really made a statement about the scope of his or her interests. The other day I walked by the poster sale going on outside of Thwing, and noticed the array of movies, music, and art that were represented. I guess this urge to personalize has not diminished.

It is possible to post pictures to this blog. We would love to see any pictures of dormlife you would like to share. When you are creating an entry, simply click on Upload File in the left menu. Then click on the Choose File button. You can then browse the files on your computer to find the photograph you want to post with your entry. After you have selected the photograph, click the Upload button. You can then add a related story or caption for the photo.

How to post to the Dormlife Blog

This blog was set up by the University Archives, with the help of the wonderful Blog@Case people, to allow alumni to share reminiscences of their dormitory experiences. There are two ways to participate: posting an entry and commenting on an entry already posted.

We would like to encourage Alumni to log in to Blog@Case to post entries. Please feel free to post entries responding to Archives' staff postings or questions, begin new threads on the established topics, or begin new threads on new topics. More information about how Alumni can get access to Blog@Case can be found in our Dormlife Blog How-To's.

If you are a student or a member of the faculty or staff and wish to make an entry, you can. All you need to do is log in to the Case Blog. After you do this, notify the University Archives staff at In your message include your Case network ID (e.g., abc123), not your password. We can then give you authoring privileges.

More information about logging in, posting, and commenting can be found at

Don't be shy! We love to hear stories about the school's history, and we'd love to hear from you.
