A community history project intended to share memories and information about East Quad, the traditional home of Residential College, before the structure underwent significant renovations in the summer of 2012. The collection includes video footage and email correspondence of current and former residents, administrators, faculty, and staff sharing stories about life in East Quad as well as a documentary video, images of murals, and a cookbook from the Halfway Inn cafe.

History The East Quad Memory Project was organized by Residential College (RC) student Rosie Levine in the spring of 2012 with support from college administration. An outgrowth from a class assignment, the East Quad Memory Project's goal was to record information and personal memories about East Quad before extensive renovations were undertaken in the summer of that year. Current and former staff, administrators, professors, and residents contributed stories and memories to the project via email and video-recorded talks at the East Quadapalooza event held on March 30, 2012. Participants also provided historical records dating back to the late 1970s, which included event materials, cook book, and a Residential College fortieth anniversary video created in 2007.
