So You Think You Know DePaul – October 2012

26 Oct
Rifle range at DePaul

Up until the late 1960s, DePaul’s Lincoln Park Campus had a shooting range where the ROTC squad practiced often. This 1962 photo captures Blue Demons during shooting practice inside the on-campus shooting range, which was housed in an unlikely place. Which building’s basement housed this shooting range?

Happy guessing! And remember these trivia rules:
