Biographical / Historical
Founded by Ben Carter and Dane Erickson, both class of 2001, in May 2000, CoHo was a co-ed eating house, and was available as an option for students during self-selection along with Turner, Warner, Conner, and Rusk Eating Houses. It was located at 120 Patterson Court in the house previously occupied by PAX, the defunct co-ed eating house that closed in 1990. When it opened up Fall 2000, it had 54 members and four social members. Since it's inception, it had struggled with gaining enough members. The Court Selection change in 2003-2004 attempted to equalize the eating houses, giving a larger percentage of the incoming members to Turner and CoHo. In an effort to survive, Coho changed to social status instead of eating house status, meaning that it stopped offering a meal plan. Experiencing lack of new membership and a significant financial debt (which was paid off), the membership of CoHo decided to close down after the spring of 2006 with 13-person membership.
