    Then there were those that proudly proclaimed to be members of Gamma Delta Iota – or as the frat boys preferred to call us “God Damn Independants.”

    Is there some way to see these posters on line?

      Most of the posters can be viewed in a slideshow near the bottom of the post. Just above the Pi Kappa Tau poster there are three options: Play, Prev, and Next. Click on them to either play the entire slideshow or to browse them at your own pace. Enjoy!

    In those days, the ‘legal’ age in NY was 18. If you were an RPI student, you were legal!
    All (or 80% at least) were open parties – to anyone on campus – helping the houses to defray band costs.

    BTW, almost total absence of problems – other than a difficult time walking home ….. even is it meant going up (or down) the Approach.

    Hey Dave, at least we “frat boys” know how to spell ‘Independents’!
