Boarding Club Students in the early 1900s at the "House of Seven Gables" on what is now on the corner of Washington and College Avenues

Being a residential college, a majority of students always lived on-campus, but when beds are full, it is a time-honored tradition for students to be allowed to seek living space in the town of St. Peter.  Between the Boarding Clubs of the early 20th century, to the off-campus residences today, students have been welcomed into the St. Peter community. The naming of a house is truly a Gustie tradition and is very special.  Each generation of Gusties has had a few house names, such as: Seven Gables, Our House and Truck (OH&T), The Clinic, The Zoo, The Bakery, Little Pine, The Barn, and Nassau. Where did you live?
