Transcript RESIDENCE HALLS A slow, easy journey can be made into the adult world via the residence halls. Small elements of grown-up life were missing, services such as housekeeping and mandatory food service plans removed the day-to-day headache of chores, but there was still a chance for responsibility. Suddenly, bedtimes and waking up on time for class become a major part of life, and the decision to cut or not to cut weighs heavy on everyone's mind. Not exactly the most homey place in the world, just over 2,000 of us still managed to call it home. Whether we faced the pecan walls and tasteless carpeting of the Quad, or the sterile, attached furniture and skinny windows of the Towers, or the tiny cubicles of Cougar Place, it was still all your own. With ready- made home came a ready-made family, with a roommate to take the place of a beloved sibling-confessor, best friend or worst enemy; a parent in the guise of the RA, and a whole slew of distant relations down the hall, we were able to settle in with a minimum of confusion and discomfort. No matter how new the experience or how jaded the resident, there was always a surprise to be found. Life in the residence halls wasn't always grand or wonderful, wasn't always wild or disruptive, and it wasn't exactly exciting or different. But it was our life, the center of the world for a semester at a time. at toro r University of Houston Residence Halls 239
