Brannon; this dorm has sinks in every room, but a fake frat called “poo” in the basement and a plethora of beer trees
chapin: on top of commons dining hall, which has the advantage of being near food. home to the notorious “chapin fourth”— chapin third, but higher.
maurer: first-semester virgin vault, second-semester slut shack. i lived there, so my internalized misogyny is fine. all women, has the maurer link in the bottom floor which is both a blessing and a curse
aldritch; the “hotel”, has a pretty chill community when they’re not breaking things. they sometimes have an elevator. aldritch, chapin and maurer are connected by tunnels
the 64-halls (Porter-Whitney-Blaisdell-Bushnell-Peet); urban legend says they’re riot proof and they have black mold in the basements. bushnell, whitney and blaisdell don’t really have reputations. porter is a faux-party dorm. peet has a reputation as a bunch of couch destroying, pot-smoking, heavy partying hippies, but there is a new crop trying to change that reputation (why? nobody knows)
609: a cult. okay, not a cult, but substance free, and that’s the same thing right? (i kid i kid— 609 is a lot more close-knit than every other dorm i’ve been in and i’m jealous. also it used to have a meth lab in the basement.)
815, wood, haven, moore; seniors only, motherfuckers!
840; hidden, camouflaged among the greeks, but not greek itself. home mostly to cool people, as far as i can tell, but observations are not 100% reliable. 840 orgies are a known phenomenon.
personally, i liked living in maurer because it was a quiet place when i was drunk/hungover and tended to be cleaner than any other dorm. but i scrambled into special interest/upperclassman housing as quickly as i could. (go for aldritch, chapin, or maurer if you can kids! the 64 halls… scare me….)
Back in the ye ole 1990s, I lived in 609, Porter, Whitney and Wood.
Sadly, no meth lab in 609 during my time. Or, was there?
It was my favorite of the four, though. Lasting friendships, yo.
