THE PARKING LOT BESIDE RENO AND SHIPLE HALLS ON THE
UNIVERSITY OF DETROIT, (DETROIT, MICHIGAN), CAMPUS
IS KNOWN UNOFFICIALLY AS "SIBERIA," WHILE THE LOT
BEHIND THE STADIUM ON FAIRFIELD AVENUE IS CALLED
"OUTER MONGOLIA." (THIS HAS SINCE BEEN TORN DOWN).
IN MOST CASES, SUCH NICKNAMES ARE KNOWN TO A CERTAIN
GROUP, SUCH AS THE ENGINEERS, THE GREEKS, THE DORM
STUDENTS, ETC. HOWEVER, I HEARD THESE NAMES (FROM A
NOW-FORGOTTEN SOURCE) AS A U-D FRESHMAN AND HAVE SINCE
FOUND THEM TO BE UNUSUALLY WIDE-SPREAD AMONG NEARLY
ALL THE STUDENTS AT THE UNIVERSITY.

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; DETROIT
