"Students at American colleges and
universities, through cooperative hous
ing projects, are cutting their ex
penses more than 30 per cent," said
Dr. L. M. Brooks, professor of cooper
ation in the sociology department.
With the first co-op student house
at the University already under way,
Carolina joins the hundreds of Ameri
can universities that are saving stu
dent costs. The 12 Carolina self-help
students that have leased a two-story

vided that from $19 to $23 a month
covered all expenses usually falling
under room and board.
At the University of Michigan 300
students live in 11 cooperative houses

More than 500 co-ops in American
universities and colleges are flourish
