Last (Small) House Standing II

There were originally 25 small houses on the SHSU campus. These "houses" are the small, brick dormitories that are home to about 30 to 40 students each or, as the case has been over the years, temporary office space for various campus departments.  (These houses aren't just small, they're versatile, too!)  And they're old: eight of them turn 60 this year.  Look on these works....

Ten down.  Fifteen to go.

As of this writing, various expansion projects are planed for the land where these houses currently reside.  If those plans are carried out then one by one these small houses will be bulldozed and forgotten.  We thought we'd make a game out of it.  Again. Which will be the last small house standing on the SHSU campus? Cast your guess today!

Our usual caveat: in no way does your “vote” sway university officials to do anything. This survey is just for fun (or what we’re again passing off as fun). Master plans are not always carried out right away, nor does the university always end up looking like the approved plan: construction can be slow, projects can shift priorities, and the university can change its mind. That, and the buildingshsu webmaster isn’t distributing prizes to anyone, either.  We'll share the results of this round once bricks begin to fly.

Stay informed and impress your friends.

(Also beware the garage.)
