Transcript Residential life Learn a lesson in survival I think I have learned more about surviving in this world by living in the residence halls than from any class I have taken or could ever take. It is truly one of those experiences in my life that I will never forget — maybe never cherish — but certainly never forget. I can remember thinking back in my naive days of high school about all the things dorm residents do to each other. I had heard of people getting their doors set afire, or someone tying one end of a rope to a person's door and tying the other end to a door directly across the hall so that neither person can open their door. I guess all of my worries were not eased much by the movie Animal House. My worst fear before I moved into the residence halls was getting stuck rooming with someone like the character played by John Belushi — an obnoxiously crude, beer-slurping slob. Luckily, I did not get stuck with someone like John Belushi. There is a group of about ten guys that play pranks on one another all the time. If one of them is taking a shower, for example, another will take his clothes and towel. It is not unusual to see someone walking down the hall dripping wet wearing the green shower curtain. Sometimes the victim will also lose the key to his room because it was in his clothes. The elevators add the final touch to the Towers experience. Sometimes one won't work or they won't stop on a certain floor, it seems. On one of them, you can't always tell if it's going up or down because the lights that indicate its direction don't function. It is also quite aggravating when there are two people on the elevator and three buttons for a floor are pushed. All in all, it is not really that bad living in the residence halls. I have heard that most people last about two years in the halls and then decide they have had enough.The most important thing learned is living with other people who are very different from yourself. ► Moody Towers Freshman Resident Jason Mc- Gaha Residential life ■ 185
