The Harriet E. Richards Cooperative House, more commonly known as HER House, just celebrated its 85th anniversary. HER House is one of the oldest cooperative dorms in the nation. It was established to provide women who otherwise would be unable to afford college a chance to attend BU by offering nominal room and board—a mission it continues today.
HER’s two dozen current residents recently invited Rhett the Terrier puppet to stop by for a little home cooking and a tour of the Bay State Road mansion-turned-dorm.
