This Day In Daily History

Portion of North Campus building collapses

Nov. 1, 1985 – An underground portion of the Dow Engineering building on North Campus collapsed yesterday.

No one was hurt, but classes were canceled, affecting hundreds of faculty and students who were forced to evacuate.

Initial explosions caused three electricians working in the area to run away.

But when they returned, something was awry because the air conditioning unit was no longer attached to the ceiling.
