Photo by Mark Lacy- Calling The Lounge Home Some Students Left Roomless Makeshift paper curtains and cardboard closets were not the epitome of dorm living. However, for some of Moody Tower's residences it had to do. Though the Towers had redefined living out of a suitcase, its "lounge lizards" residents were not complaining. "I don't mind," said junior percussion performance major Terreon Gullys. "I'm just happy I got a place to stay." "If they let me stay here, I'll make my own curtains," said Christopher Irwin, a 20-year-old electrical engineering major who lives in the north tower's seventh floor lounge. "I'm gonna be mad if they move me next week because I already set my stuff up." Regardless of criticisms, if a student paid for a room, a student should have gotten a room, the situation was quite the contrary. Students who lived in the lounges chose to do so and received the same services as those in regular dorm rooms, including housekeeping. "The students knew up front that they would be in the lounges," said Sandy Coltharp, assistant director of Residential Life and Housing. The process of placing students in one of the towers' 1,100 rooms was sort of a guessing game. The housing department anticipated some students who signed housing agreements would not be staying there. "Some students don't get accepted to UH and have to go to another school, so they can't receive housing," Coltharp said. "Other students simply change their minds about accepting housing or are no-shows." The housing hopefuls were made aware of the possibility of not getting a room and were put on an overflow list which would place them as soon as it is available. However, the outlook last year was positive. Year before last, the towers had an excess of 100 students living in the lounges, said , assistant director of Housing Services. Some students remained in lounges for the entirety of the semester, Coltharp said. "Learning from our hard-knocks, we did not want to put that many people in overflow. Last year there were only 29 students in overflow and all were expected to be place. -Michica Guillory 96 Residence Halls
