The Women's Dormitory Association was an organization of women students living in university approved residence halls, co-ops
or boarding houses (but not sororities). Its purpose was to further co-operation and unity among the women on campus, encourage
high standards of scholarship, conduct and participation in living group and campus activities, and link the residents with
the student government. The Executive Committee was made up of officers and house presidents. The WDA president was on the
Associated Women Students board.
The main function was to solve house problems. Other activities were a tea for new housemothers, a scholarship tea, workshops
for house officers and fund raising sales for an annual scholarship for an undergraduate woman.
