McCollum Hall, the largest dorm for the University of Kansas, has been demolished.  It is bittersweet for some students, as although the place was pretty rundown, these quirks gave it a certain charm.

About 750 pounds of explosives were used to demolish the 220,000 square-foot building, which opened in 1965. It was named after the brothers Elmer V. and Burton McCollum. The building cost $3.4 million to build. Its original capacity was 488 rooms for 976 students.
