I loved the Hood

had a 80' White Pine crash through my roof while living there during an afternoon thunderstorm... pretty sturdy not to completely flatten. Pretty big branch knifed through the center light fixture though...

They're are pretty scary looking but it was the only place on campus where you could live separate from a huge building of idiots. As long as your fellow duplex neighbors were cool it was a great place to live.


I lived in the Hood in '02. Those stains are my fault

Sorry Dabo. They had a pretty nice ping pong table at the wash room facility back then.


In the Spring of '91, I dropped a few quarters in the

RBI Baseball arcade game in the laundry mat. I enjoyed living in Thornhill the 2nd semester of my Freshman year.


At this rate, every place I stayed in Clemson will be gone.

Freshman & Sophomore year were shoeboxes, Junior year was Thornhill, & Senior year was Freedom Drive apartments.

So far, Freedom Drive apartments have been nuked and become a Publix (I think it's a Publix) parking lot with an iHop & Red Bowl stuff. Those apartments rocked, could walk to the ABC Store that burned down the year after I graduated.

First semester sophomore year a few years ago. It was nice being on campus, but the place itself was a dump. I always wondered why some athletes lived there

Lightsey is and Stadium Suites are the best on campus

and I would give them B- grades at best. Dabo is right, on campus housing is atrocious.

It was outdated in 1983. Good location though.

We're friends. You laugh, I laugh. You cry, I cry. You jump off a bridge, I get in my boat and save your retarded a$$.


Wow, what a relief. Someone of significance finally pointed

out the obvious. While we're at it, aren't sections of Johnstone still standing?! How about the travesty that is Brackett Hall, too? One of the ugliest nods to early-90s architecture I have ever seen!

Not of the original Stone....the "girls" section (A) that was attached to the Union is there, but THE Johnstone everyone called Johnstone (C,D,F), was the building behind all that. Last I saw, it's completely gone.

What I see today is much nicer than Johnstone D4 of '90-'91, but can't be as much fun.

on campus I noticed how out of place Brackett is. There have to be several groups of people to blame that one on.

I also lived there in '83-84. Lived next door to a guy on the swim team who dealt weed to most of the campus lol. Sorry to say some members of our not-so-good basketball team were frequent visitors of his .. :)

THE Stone....Johnstone...now there is where the memories of so many a freshman lie (including some of mine). And paint was the least of it's worries.

Agree - lived in Johnstone in '84 to '86. Had a blast as a Freshman and Sophomore - just had to deal with the weekend puke and stale beer smell....

BOT and the President It does nobody any good to air our problems in public, or where public can read it. I thought Danny was right as well, but it led to hid demise (unjustly).
