Many students complain about living in the residence halls for a few years. Quadrangle Area Coordinator Kathy Stephens has been living in residence halls for the last ten years. And, not only that, but for the last four years, she's raised her two children in university residence halls. She describes the arrangement as "every single working mother's dream." She doesn't have to empty trash cans or vacuum; housekeeping does that. If something breaks, maintenance fixes it. She doesn't have to do dishes or cooking; they eat in the cafeteria. And, she's surrounded by willing babysitters. Stephen's children, Peggy, 4, and Trey, 3, were born when she was a hall director at Southwest Texas State University for two years. She's been at UH for almost two years as well. The children enjoy the residence halls she said. Being surrounded by people all of the time has made them "friendly and open to meeting peo ple," as well as giving them a more outgoing personality. The kids are at an off-campus day care facility during the day. Stephens picks them up after work and is able to spend the late afternoon and evening hours with them. Stephens lives in Oberholtzer Hall on a 24-hour quiet floor. She said she is always telling the kids they must be quiet because of the other residents, but occasionally the kids 'turn the tables' on her by complaining, "I can't go to sleep. The girls across the hall are too noisy." Stephens said she misses out on some of the spontaneous events in which the other staff members participate, but the staff members treat her no different. Although, "at first it took people awhile to know that it's okay to call me at night." She said the benefits of raising children in the halls far outweigh the negative things. "For me it's the best thing," she said. ► Beth A. Johnson Staff ■ 197
