MISCELLANEA ON MARQUETTE UNIVERSITY

2 notes

Throwback Thursday — Video Games at Brooks Memorial Union: In 1982, arcade video games like Tempest, Centipede and Ms. Pac-Man ate quarters from student pockets. Marquette University’s old Brooks Union game room was located — where else? — in the basement. 
The Alumni Memorial Union replaced Brooks in 1990, and Brooks Hall was demolished in 2001 to clear the way for the Raynor Library. The game room in the AMU still carries the Brooks name, in honor of Rev. Peter A. Brooks, S.J., MU alumnus, first union manager and 17th university president.
