Excel Formula

I have a column with various names on column A1. I want to put a formula on column B1 that looks at column A1 and if A1 has the words "Dorm" return the value "Dorm" else leave blank. Below is an example of what is con column A1 and A2. Do you have an Excel formula that can do this?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
