Lite in tne Dorms
Ron Rc :;tJ
It’s a typical September sight at Montana State University. Hundreds of wide eyed freshmen arrive with their families and a rented U-Haul trailer containing all of their bare necessities. Within two hours of kissing Mommy good-bye and walking petrified to his new room to meet his yet unseen roommate, the average freshman has found a party and is well on his way to becoming completely blitzed. In this manner, the residence hall becomes home.
Each housing building soon becomes a big part of the many students’ lives, at least for their first year. In fact, some students become so involved the first few weeks that they are unaware of the fact that they are supposed to have classes. What exactly is this place which houses masses of wild and eager students, now unwatched by their parents’ eye?
The preliminary investigation can take place once one has made way through Bud-weiser. Rainier, Moosehead and other assorted “beverage” cans and has made it to
any convenient room (oh yeah, Mom, I forgot to tell you that this is a co-ed dorm!) There is a certain common “uniqueness” that classifies this area. No room is complete without various posters advocating the occupant’s favorite beer, a stocked refrigerator, pictures of the gang back home, growing piles of laundry, and the “super cool” roommate (at least for the first week!)
A quick comradery develops among the students and the more noticeable characters emerge: the girl who insists on wearing her short robe down the hall among male visitors, the guy on 8th whose music interests arc well known to everyone in a five mile radius, the RA who is fanatical about open containers, the guy who has decided to live with his favorite friend on the girls’ floor rather than the more traditional arrangement, and numerous others. These friendships are further strengthened by the nightly party to be found somewhere or another.
But life in the residence halls is not one eternal party. Soon people begin realizing
how strange their roommates really are, or how well sound and conversation travels through the walls. On weekends, the bathrooms become somewhat foreboding without being cleaned. Rooms are too sm 11 to store bikes and other large items, co d showers become customary to those not up by 9 a.m., and uninvited people come to see your roommate at strange hours. Bei locked out of your room after a shower, unforseen fire drills, and the lounge cha r that makes it to the sidewalk from the fifth floor become maddening items. Those u live on the top floor encounter extraordin -ily long waits for the elevators or are forced to use the stairs.
However, most residents seem to enj y (for the most part) life in the dormitori While some of the luxuries and privacies of home have been sacrificed, freedom and friends have been gained.
