Obie-Dobie Time May 23, 2013 By peggyo I’m off to my college reunion and going on blog hiatus. See you! My school had the first co-ed dorms in the U.S in 1970, when college students looked like this. By the time I got there, about a decade later, students were asking for co-ed dorm ROOMS! (I got this photo form a web site called www.art.com. It is a photographic print by Bill Ray).
