I spent my first college semester at Arkansas State, when they were the politically incorrect Indians. Now the mascot has been changed to Red Wolves, which I choose to ignore. Why are people so sensitive? My roommate and I had a great time at ASU, going to football games and parties and sharing clothes. We made many, many late night Taco Bell runs for tostadas. We were absolutely addicted to tostadas.

We visited Tate last weekend. His dorm room wasn’t as messy as I expected. There were four Glade Air Fresheners in that tiny space, so it didn’t stink. There were a couple of interesting signs posted in the common area, the first beside the elevator – “do not push elevator buttons with you feet or spit in the elevator.” Really? But the buttons are shoulder height. Tate clarified, “Yeah, people are always pushing the buttons with their feet.” And spitting in the elevator? Who does this? Texan Razorbacks apparently.

And evidently someone smuggled in their pet piranha along with their XBox one year? Or a squirrel? Or a pet mallard duck? Of course it is Arkansas. Pig Soooie!

Flounder: Gee Otter, thanks. What do I have to do?
Otter: It means you have to drive us to the Food King.

“Oh,the Places You’ll Go” is one of my favorites. I loved living in a dorm; everyone should live in a dorm at some time in their lives. AND, there is only one time to do it. Listen up you high school seniors!
Loved this one Talya. Love all my Caraway Third Floor girlfriends. theBAT
I had such a good response all typed out and lost it. BOO HOO! I don’t have the energy to retype it…for some reason, this having to sign in and then get approved is just not working for me. Oh well, another great one, Talya! I loved being at UofA – many taco bell runs for LaNette and I!

I changed it so you can just post directly with no approval:) T.

I agree…everyone should live the dorm life when they first go to college. I loved ASU and lived in Kay’s Hall until I became an Alpha Gam my third year and moved into University Hall. I met my husband at ASU. He was a Kappa Alpha and impressed me with the way he always stood up when I entered a room….and he opened my door…which I loved and still do. After 32 years…he still impresses me.
I remember well “Old South”, dances at The Pavilion, Couches, Bono Bridge, riding in my hearse, playing spades in the KA suite, tuna weekends with my sorority sister Jill, basketball, football & baseball games, homecoming week and the huge displays….loved it all!!! Thanks for the memory walk Talya!!!
