    The bathrooms are down the hall, but I lived there 1 summer (quite a few years ago) and it was nice enough. The rooms are a little bigger than some dorms.

    They put the men in there in Summer 97. Plenty of poor choices and good times in that joint.

    You'll have to ask DallasDog for the details, though. I cant seem to recollect much.

    I think you have to hope an alumni of the previous 5 years answers your question. All the places where I stayed are gone. As a matter of fact my college is gone - sort-of, just saying that the old CAB is gone and in a few years Wiley Tower will be gone.

    I got the Tech report last week and didn't recognize half the buildings they were displaying.

    But I think your friend's kid will have a great time with what they have now. Just add the advice for him/her to make connections and join groups and don't go home every weekend. That always seemed to be the great separator.

    If they can be in the band even just for their freshman year, then they will go to band camp and have instant connections once the Fall Quarter starts.

    I can't find where they have updated their maps or description.

    Really? Last time I drove through (Thanksgiving) I thought it was still there.

    Good times in Graham. Typical dorm, certainly not what hoity toity college students are used to these days. It was a character building experience for sure, one I'm glad I had.

    Not that I ever lived there but Hale with three guys in a room must have been character building. Richardson was. Three to a room and no AC They squeezed in three beds (a single and a bunk) but three desks and chests of drawers made for a tight fit. And you had 2/3 of a closet.

    Grateful that I wasn't in Hale. Back then there were hardly any off campus apartments and the newest dorms were Hutchinson for men and Harper for Women. Tech jumped from an enrollment of about 2500 in the fall of 1964 to just over 6000 in the fall of 1965 (4000 men and 2000 women). Fortunately my friends and I got our room requests in very early -- November of 1964 for 1965 school year. However, when my older brother went up in the fall of 1962 there were still three men to a room in Hale where he was.

    I was in Hale my freshman year with two other guys. No AC and radiators for heat. Bathroom without dividers around the toilets and one pay phone down the hall. Ya' had to be tough to be a frosh back then!!
