With the new residence hall opening this fall, we asked the 30,000 people who follow Xavier on Facebook what their favorite dorm memories were. Here’s a sampling of their wisdom:
"Certainly not the multiple 4 am fire alarms."
"Maybe the major water fight among all floors of Brockman which left several inches of water on the lowest level ... was glad I was on the third floor!! lol"
- John Connell
"Playing pranks in Brock freshman year ... coming back to our room to find our chairs missing - the guys wanted to teach us a lesson to keep our doors locked!"
"Too many to mention :). Especially on FB!!!"
"I lived in Husman, so I loved being called, "Saint."
"Throwing up in the elevator and then denying it to the R.A."
"Having the mold scraped out of my suite's bathroom light fixture. Soooo much better than putting in a new one. The current students are so lucky to have Father Graham as their President!"
-Beth Kamphaus Knotts
"Fr. LaRocca's dog, Muskie got out and ran to our room to beg for food."
-Emily Nicole Pierce
"Remembering what day it was and where I was supposed to be (after noon, of course) on any given day."
"Using a small closet space in brockman for cutting hair to ear extra cash...there were some really trusting people at that time!"
"Watching the first season of a new show called southpark huddled together with the guys in Brockman."
