One time it was raining freshman year and I was under dressed so I came to Graham to seek cover. After dashing through, soaking wet I reflected on the fact that I had never met a finer group of observers.
Slip and slide across the quad. I used laundry detergent as the sliding agent- some guys ended up with chemical burns on the male parts. I am the last 4 year graham resident. 2 years as a student 2 years as a CF.
Launching water balloons into the San Filippo quad.
During CF training, I did my first mock alcohol violation write up. It was also my last.
I started to work at the SCU archives when I lived in Graham sophomore year. It was really interesting to learn about Graham's past, go back to my room, and try to imagine what it was like back in the 1960s.

Frisbee in the quad
My favorite memory would e the day the boys of 200 created their own slip and slide in the quad. It was such a fun day, minus the chemical burns that they boys got from using laundry detergent and soap to slide on! :(
Hanging out with Rachel, Hana, and Tillie.
Laying out in the sun.. plus also playing frisbee during the day!
