Transcript A QUINTESSENTIAL COLLEGE EXPERIENCE Living in the dorms, often seen as the quintessential college experience, was right up there with cramming for mid-terms and frat parties. "It's an experience everybody should go through," says freshman Annette Sanez, who lived in the South Tower, "It's real different from being at home," she explained further. "They [commuters] don't get a feel for what it's like to be in college," said Sarah Ballard, a freshman resident of the North Tower. "You're a lot more on your own," explains Sanez. Living in the dorms forced students into an independence they didn't have at home with Mom and Dad. You had to get yourself to class, remember to write your Psych paper on your own, and wash your own clothes. "You're by yourself - nobody else is going to do it," summarizes Sanez. Plus, when your neighbor fell in love with a new CD and played it loud enough to be heard by the man on the moon, there was not much you could do but grit your teeth and pray your other neighbor did not buy a new CD as well. But there were perks to being in a dorm. You could interact with people from your classes and on campus. "You make a lot of friends," said Sanez. 2 8 • CAMPUS LIFE Katie Kalenda hands J. Rodriguez her CougarOne card to check out equipment. The campus ID cards were needed by residents for access to the buildings, using computer labs and even purchasing food. "Living on campus, everything is accessible. You don't have to deal with parking and commuting and traffic," says g Ballard. Living on campus did x J make it easier to get to an 8:30am class on time. Nicole Denton, a sophomore finance major who had lived in both the Quads and the Towers, believed each residence hall had a personality of its own. In the Towers there are "more people to hang around," she explains, "they were much more social than the Quads." "You have your own bathroom, gigantic closets, and lots of space in the Quads. The rooms are twice as big as the rooms in the Towers, and it's coed." But she found disadvantages to living in the Quads. "They were more expensive, off to themselves and not a lot of fun walking back to in the middle of the night. There's no privacy, the walls are really, really thin," explains Denton. Overall, living in the dorms was recommended by many. Whether it was the social factor, the convenience, or the independence, there was something about living in the dorms that appealed to many, by Elizabeth Combs Not looking back, Joshua Silberman (left), sophomore creative writing major, makes his final trip to with his last load of stuff. Students could be seen leaving at all times during the week of finals, although they were given until the Saturday after. Carefully placing each of her belongings in her trunk, Sherry Ellison, senior M/S major, prepares for her scheduled move out. Finding the time between finals and enough space to pack was a popular problem among members of each dorm. Checklists In hand, students wait for their turn to be officially checked out of their room. Each person was given a damage form to fill out and have approved by a residence hall staff member before leaving the dorms. Life In The Dorms • 2 9
