One of the things that I remember fondly about my college days at the University of Missouri is “The Shack” which was a hangout for students. The original Shack is long gone, but a new Shack was recently built.

The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote

COLUMBIA – A chipped and faded green door gave way to the musty, wooden smell of one of MU’s oldest hangouts. Inside The Shack, the tables and bar were adorned with initials carved into them by many generations.

The Shack was one of the lasting memories of MU alums for the better part of the 20th century, but it has been nearly 20 years since it burned to the ground in 1988.

Soon, a new generation of MU students will be able to experience this former campus landmark. A restoration of The Shack is included in the plans for the expansion of Brady Commons. But these students might not even realize The Shack dates back to before many of their grandparents were even born.

End quote

  1. That’s some college-level ‘rithmetic going on there (20 years since 1988)!
