Send us your fond memories of “Building 109″

apartment building fire

By now you may have heard that Student Apartment Building 109 burned to the ground this summer. Fortunately it was unoccupied, and there were no injuries. Arson has been ruled out. Approximately 60 of the 2,000 students returning to live on campus in fall of 2009 are currently being helped by University officials to locate alternative housing while campus officials investigate longterm solution. Could more suites be in our future? We would love for you to share your memories of living in 109. Perhaps you met your future spouse there. Did you begrudge having to make the longest walk to classes and the Union? Did you request 109 for four years? Why? Please click on the following link and share your thoughts.
