This late 1920s campus view shows the former LDS Institute (now the Dental Hygiene Bldg.) on the upper right. Left of it is Residence Hall (now a parking lot) on the corner of 8th and Terry.  On the far top left is Colonial Hall, by Paradice in 1925 (former dorm, now an office bldg.) Other buildings are, center left to right, Faris Hall (boys’ dorm) current location of Physical Science; the Beanery (cafeteria), replaced by Engineering; and the old Engineering bldg., (currently a parking lot). Next row, Swanson Hall, Baldwin Hall, and the original Reed Gym, (no longer standing). Bottom row, Frazier Hall, 1924, still in use, and the original Turner House (girls’ dorm), current location of Business Administration. Bottom right with the tall smoke stack, is the original campus heating plant.

Four buildings of five on the ISU campus designed by famous local architect Frank H. Paradice are still in use. They are Colonial Hall, the Administration building, Gravely Hall, and Reed Gym. Residence Hall was demolished for additional campus parking several years ago.

Nearing the entrance, a water fountain adorned with lion’s heads with words invoking the arts (“dedication”, “potential”, “imagination”, etc.) greets the lavish entryway. This community dinner theatre makes you feel like you’ve stepped outside of the mundane and into something magical.

When it comes to the 12-month calendar, February is the odd one out. It is the shortest, for starters, but it is also the only month that can have an extra day tacked onto it every four years.

Did you know that the first heart-shaped box of chocolates was introduced in 1861 (Hawkins, 2019)? You may be one of those people who shower their loved ones with chocolates and flowers on Valentine’s Day or you may be the one who consciously avoids all things red during February.
