Picture this...August 1996, a young 17 yr old is off to college and his first dorm and all the joys of college life.
That young man graduated 6 yrs later. What about the dorm? Well, see for yourself...
Apparently, this isn't the only dorm at my college (Northwestern St. University) to be torn down. I hear that all but one are now gone, and the only reason that last one is still standing is because of its historical value (there's a whole history lesson to go into involving it surviving fires and whatnot).
From what I can understand, they're joining in with the fad of building campus apartments.
Still, it is sad. Some of my fondest memories on-campus were had in the dorms. I can only imagine when I go back for football games this fall how different campus will look. At least I know about it, imagine about the alumni who will be coming down that have no idea! Talk about a shock!
btw...the dorm that I spent my first two years in was not as good as I made it out to be. I actually hated living there. The second yr, it was my job to live there, but not a day went by that I didn't want out, but the memories were good. Not sure if that made any sense to anyone but me, but I'm tired!
