Hotel Minear

Staci Thompson, cSc '86, describes the Hotel Minear tradition:

We had a suite tradition of being Hotel Minear, so we all had our own t-shirts made as freshman to join in, complete with nasty nicknames on the back. Can't even remember my nickname, darn it! As part of the tradition, there was one particular night, maybe the night of the first dance of the year on campus, when we had to make a banner that said "Hotel Minear, $1.98+tax" and hang it over the front door of Robbie. I remember that my first year we were in the middle of hanging it when the Dean came by and asked what we were doing, but he didn't make us stop...
