Transcript Good Livin Students show their style School banners on the wall, posters of hunks or bathing beauties, organized desks with all the supplies needed. Is this what you would expect from the room of a resident of the campus? If so, you should guess again. Students living in the residence halls had a variety of room decors, that ranged from tossed pillows to delicate porcelain figures. Some students built elaborate lofts for the extra space they provided. Some students bunked their beds, or had them arranged on separate sides of the room. Posters of everything ranging from rock stars to movie posters, and classic artworks monopolized the walls, like Picasso and Monet. Other walls remained generic and bare, as if school had just begun. Room decorations was sometimes difficult when one's roommate couldn't be found. "It would be great if you could get together with your roomates, but so often you can't, " said Guy Burns, a sophomore graphic communications major. Posters seemed to be the most popular mode of communicating one's tastes, and claiming the space as one's own, at least for the year. They ranged from tasteful to definitely outrageous. One poster had two teddy bears, one on top of the other, with the caption "How Teddy Bears are Made." "We had a wide variety of decor in my room. We had everthing from the Grateful Dead to Georgia O'Keefe," said April Flowers, a sophomore drama major. The rooms would be better, said one resident, if the walls were more colorful. The walls were a cream color and possibly would have looked better if the carpet had been a brighter color. "Well, my room is very homey," said Rachel Del Rosario, "I just put some photos of my family on the shelves, a few posters on the wall and throw all of my clothes on the floor, making it much like my room at home." Whatever the mode of decor, one thing was for sure. Each year, when residents moved in, they made their claims to the room, as their own. Their true natures came through, depending on their tastes. "I like movie posters. We had them all over the room. I'd like more flesh posters also," said Burns. -Marjorie Goodman Musical Taste.
