My friends and I went into the basement one night, took all of the furniture from the rooms. We then built a massive fort in the middle of the basement and slept there. Also, frisbee in the graham quad and firsbee tournaments on the library lawn!
Turning the Graham basement into a pirate ship! And all of the frisbee in the quad!
Freshman year I would cook breakfast after midnight for Graham 200. Another resident would read the "Red Hot" section from Cosmo- we called it Pancakes and Porn.
My formative first year of SCU was spent in Graham 300. On my first day in California I met my freshman year roommates. My Meri roommate and I had our fist awkward "we are going to be living together for a YEAR" photo taken in our new abode, Graham 323. We immersed ourselves in the day to day life of an excited freshman Broncos. RLCA Alpha events, off campus exploring, and of course familiarizing ourselves with our college courses. We spent countless hours in our sweet corner room with the perfect view of Safeway and numerous off-campus homes getting a lay of the land. Graham was home. Hot spring days sent all Graham residents crawling outside into the quad for some relief from the stifling rooms. Looking back five years later at that first year of college, everyday I wish I could go back and do it all the same. Graham provided the perfect transition into a successful four year career at SCU. Being bonded in Graham is not something easily let go of. I live today in San Francisco with Meri and our next door Graham neighbor Morgan (Graham 321). The Graham spirit of community has kept us close for 5 years and will continue to be the foundation of our friendships for years to come. Far from little Graham 300, three Broncos celebrate their friendship formed, long live Graham.
Taking the closet doors off and using them as a table to play beerpong in the dorm room/longboarding out the door every morning to go to class.

Where to begin? Watching movies in the Graham basement, watching my friend accidentally light his hand on fire on the balcony of Graham 100, finding a tarantula in my bed... the memories are endless and unforgettable.
There isn't enough space in the world to share the memories I had while living in Graham
Living with Jesse Dekens in room 313!
This place was my first home away from home in college. I'll never forget the friends I made as they are like my family to me.
I loved having movie nights in the Graham basement. I also will never forget out intense Super Smash Brothers Tournament!
