Space Invaders Anyone?  1981

A new video game room was established outside of Plato’s Cave, on the first floor of Thomas Hall.  When students returned from winter break in January 1981, popular arcade games like Space Invaders and Missile Command awaited them.  Throughout the year tournaments were held and pizza prizes awarded.  The impromptu arcade proved very popular, especially among the male students.
