“The Shack Club”

The house became a College dormitory in 1901, dubbed “The Shack” by students. This photo is from 1917. By 1921, behavior had become so unruly that the College temporarily closed the residence hall and barred that year’s inhabitants from returning to it. The 1921 yearbook includes an “Ex-Shack Club” whose motto was “We will do anything but what is right; if we ever did a good deed, we are sorry.” 1917 College of Charleston Magazine.
