When chores become hassles
Laundry was a hassle the students
faced every week or so. In the Towers, the hassle involved buying tickets in order to operate the machines.
Then it was back to the room to
gather and separate the evergrowing pile of clothes. Since the elevator only goes up to the 17th floor,

get after "hiking up" to the
washateria, students would load
their clothing into one of the twelve
washers and then wait anxiously to
see if they remembered to separate
"the whites from the darks."
The laundry hassle in the Quad
rangle involved buying tickets to operate the machines, but the Quad
machines are neatly located in the
basements of each building.

and separating their clothes, students
would usually arrive to the basement
and find that all four washers and
