Theater? Concerts were on folding chairs in the gym!

The "Bridge to Nowhere" - The bridge was built to go to from the Studen Union building to the old library, but it was the wrong height and they decided to wait because they built the new library. Unfortunately Fortunately, the height mismatch was still horrific. The bridge to nowhere just went out from the SU building, over the road, and then, after a while, just stopped with a wall. There were even tee-shirts: "Stonybrook - The Bridge to Nowhere". What you probably saw was the connection to the fine-arts center and stuff - all of which appeared well after I was gone. Dorms: Tabler->Tabler->Roth->Kelly. What you call Roosevelt Quad was simply called Stage 12, as it had no name; Mendelsohn Quad was simply called "G" Quad.. Many dorms had alternate names - for example, in Roth they had Hendrix named after Jim Hendrex; in Kelly, they had Marx, named after Harpo Marx; &etc.; They were the only names most of us ever knew.

There was no meal plan when I was a Freshman - they were thrown off campus and not replaced. We all cooked for ourselves - and fought tooth and nail to keep it that way when they brought new profiteers back on campus.

Straw Poll

When thinking about your job, how important is the option to work from home?
Some bosses are casual about where you work, and some, naming no names, will insist you're in the office, always. What are your thoughts?
