This woman’s dorm room from 1898 isn’t much different from modern day dorms: Pennants, books, and a chair for studying.
Male students raised a glass in a boarding house or fraternity in this 1909 photo.
Imagine pecking out your thesis on that typewriter, shown in a 1909 photo.
By 1912, pin-up ladies were essential decor.
So were displays of college pride, as seen in this image (1912 or 1913).

In the early 1980s, TVs started appearing in dorm rooms, distracting students everywhere.

Students gathered to study in a residence hall den, as seen in this 1996 picture.
A 2005 photo shows students taking a study break with a game of Cranium.
