New Beginning n January 25, 1988, California y State University, Fullerton offi- V cially opened its campus hous- ing. While Dr. Cobb held a ribbon cutting ceremony in the outdoor re- creation area of the new resident halls, eager students and a few par- ents lugged clothing, stereos, lamps, posters and televisions into their new homes for the semester. The housing complex consists of three four-story buildings and a community center. The community center offers typing rooms, comput- er rooms, a large recreation room, a lounge and a laundry facility. The entire complex is surrounded by a park like area which includes: barbe- cue pits, picnic tables and a full size basketball court. There is also a park- ing structure which can accommo- date 200 automobiles. The lucky residents who win the right to park there are chosen by way of a lottery. Within the three four-story builds, there are 66 three bedroom suites designed to house six students (of the same sex, of course). Five of the suites offer special facilities for disa- bled students. The 1,100 square feet suites have three bedrooms, two baths, and are air conditioned. They are fully fur- nished and come equipped with a 20 cubic foot refrigerator, a stove, an oven and a microwave oven. The suites also have cable television ca- pability and each room is wired for computer hook-up. For most of the new tenants who moved in that sunny January day, it would be the first time away from home, the first time they would have to cook for themselves, the first time they would have to do their own laundry and the first time they would have to learn how to use a budget. However, just knowing that they would be independent and free from parental authority was incen- tive enough to keep the fears of be- ing on their own from frightening them too much. One new dorm resident describes his first few days there: moved to the dorms so that I would have more independence and to get away from home. Before see- ing my new home, I had worried that the dorms would be similar to the small, cramped ones I had seen at other universities. I was pleasantly surprised to find our dorms to be spacious and spread out. After meeting my five roommates, I felt more comfortable. Except for a few minor problems in the begin- ning, things worked out with them. You never know what ' s going to happen when six strangers are put together for a semester. Things were pretty quiet the first few days. However, on the first weekend after school started, things went a little crazy. There were sever- al BIG parties that Friday night. Peo- ple were everywhere; the place looked like an ant hill. But things suddenly came to a stand still when fire alarms started going off. Some people had gotten out of hand and had begun pulling the alarms. Need- less to say, the resident Advisors were not to happy about it. From that night on, there were new rules: no kegs of beer allowed in the suites and no more than five guests in each suite at a time without permission from the proper authorities. Now, things have settled and ev- eryone is getting back to their nor- mal routine. It ' s so nice here because everybody knows each other and is friendly. You would think that we wouldn ' t be able to get any studying done, but usually we can. There aren ' t anymore wild parties and most of our neighbors don ' t play loud music, most of the time. I ' m really glad I moved in. It ' s more like a condominium than a dorm. Plus, it ' s close to school and now I don ' t have to fight for a park- ing space. On campus housing was the one of the major facilities that CSUF was missing. Now, there is a community of students on campus 24 hours a day. They are able to use University facilities more than other students and thus, can become more involved in extra-curricular activities. Before, most of the students who were in- volved in many of the school ' s activi- ties were in the sororities and frater- nities. The dorms residents are now also given the opportunity to use the convenience of living close to cam- pus to enhance their academic ca- reers. - by Bridget Baldwin. Titan ' 88
