Transcript Study hole A campus resident studies his textbook for a class while enjoying the fresh air outside one of the residence halls. The students who lived on campus did not necessarily spend all of their time shut in their dorms. Photo by John Patrick -: * ^~. WMmW^A:M HYING IN UH s nop-corwuters enjoj on~ caopus life Mmm, Blue Bell! A student bags her purchase in the OB quick mart - a pint of Blue Bell ice cream. The small stores located in the residence halls allowed campus residents to grab a quick bite to eat, or stock up on food for their rooms. Photo by John Patrick 54/ Student Life Even though UH was known as primarily a "commuter" campus, there was definitely a significant number of students who lived in the dorms on campus. The Moody Towers and the five buildings in the Quad were packed with students who spent nearly all of their time on campus - living, eating, studying, and sleeping on UH grounds. Students chose to live in the dorms for various reasons. For students without a car, life was inordinately easier if they did not have to ride the Metro bus, or bum a ride from friends to get to class. The proximity to their classes was also an advantage to the dorm-dwellers, as they got to sleep in a little later before class. "I just get up, jump in the shower, and throw on some clothes. It's fifteen minutes, tops!" said freshman university studies major Suzie Body. Students who lived off-campus, especially those with a long commute, had to get up much earlier to allow time for the drive. Some students preferred the dorms for the more complete "college experience". Living in such close proximity to other students gave them a chance to meet new friends, find study partners, and simply to feel more like a member of the UH community. These students were also the ones who were the most available for the many on- campus activities which took place throughout the year. Since they did not have to worry about beating traffic, making it home for dinner, or sticking to their ride's schedule, they were able to hang around for the concerts, visiting speakers, different parties or special events. Many students did not even know about some of the pro- grams that their classmates attended until the next day. Whatever their reason for living on campus, the students who did so enjoyed many benefits which their peers may never even have appreciated. Story by Ashley Grubbs Courting the electorate A student decorates a sign on one of the announcement boards, advertising a candidate for one of the Resident Hall Association offices. The election of these officers was important to the residents, because it determined who would be representing their interests. Photo by John Patrick Life \55
