Biographical / historical:

The Association of Independent Houses (AIH), established in the late 1960s, represented all independent freshman and undergraduate dormitories and residence halls on both East and West campuses. The AIH assisted with general management of extracurricular activities, managed large parties, and acted as a general advocate for on-campus student residents. The AIH included Buchanan, Canterbury, Lancaster, Lee, Manchester, Mirecourt, Tabard, Taylor, Warwick, Windsor, and York Houses, and B.O.G. (Bunch of Guys), an independent living group. AIH was disbanded in 1982 due to lack of house participation. The responsibilities of the AIH were absorbed by the Undergraduate Judicial Board.
