What Does the IMU Mean to You?

A few days ago, while talking to an alumnus who attended Iowa in the late 1960s, I realized that every UI class has a different view of the Iowa Memorial Union. He talked about playing cards, shooting darts, and going bowling at the IMU, while none of those activities were popular there while I was a student. Instead, I visited the union to eat Pizza Hut, shop for school supplies, and attend concerts or lectures. A 1950s graduate might remember dances in the Richey  Ballroom, while today’s students go there to visit the Museum of Art or for group study sessions.

What was your experience with the IMU as a student? Leave your memories here.
