The hall looks much like a regu

The cost of living in the hall is
about half of residence hall costs.

Co-op living was popular in the

in the ’80s at the University of

halls were dilapidated. Love
Memorial Hall was remodeled two
years ago. Schlichting attributed
the decline in co-op living to stu

having to cook and clean, she said.
