My favorite memoty I have had at Santa Clara happened in Graham which was meeting my best friend. As we walked over to a program as an RLC, i met my best friend who lived in another Graham building. The memories we had together watching movies, doing homework in the basement, making puppychow in the kitchen and staying up late chatting in the lounge will stay with me forever. Without these buildings, none of it could have been possible.

    Memories . . . Steve Martin at Pipestage . . . what a deal! And who could forget the quesadillas . . . Wine and Cheese on Tuesday nights and the great dance parties that included doing the hustle in Graham 400.
     When I started at SCU I was a little disappointed that I ended up on the "upperclassman" side of campus, thinking I would miss the fun associated with Swig. Soon I realized that I I had the best arrangements - I mean a pool right outside my dorm? What a community we built. Thanks for the memories.

    Forgot to mention I lived in Graham 300 for two years before moving off campus and then spending my senior year as a RA in Swig on the 8th floor. Debbie Medeiros Carey Class of 80

    Graham 200 was the best dorm on campus, period!! Playing frisbee over the pool and off the sides of the dorm wall all afternoon was a great stress reliever! Some even made it into the open windows! Then there were the post finals jam sessions out on the pool deck, fun stuff!! Those were the daze...

    I lived in Graham 100 and I remember seeing a poor quality b/w flyer for " A Wild and Crazy Guy" with a silly balloon hat affixed to the light post outside Graham 100. Would sure like to have that now! As I recall the Doobie Brothers also played Pipestage. I also recall Huey Lewis and the News playing for a Law School function. But the most memorable was being part of the inaugural class of the "Living Learning Dorm" where I was exposed to all matter of things, including about 30 people who all went to see " The Exorcist" and then were too scared to go to sleep!
