On the second weekend of school, freshmen year a small group of us, say 10 people all decided, spontaneously to build a giant fort in Graham basement using all of the couches and chairs we could find. We did so and upon creating an amazingly awesome fort we decided we should sleep in it. So, we gathered up blankets and pillows and camped in Graham Basement overnight sharing stories and getting to know each other in our newly created fort. We played Cranium, learned each others backgrounds and the like. It was a great night. I remember not knowing everyone's name at the time, I was very bad with names and we had just met, but we shared stories and laughs regardless.We became friends that night. All of us, and we still are today. That was the beginning, and it all happened in Graham Basement.
When we would throw dance parties in the room after going out.. we'd have 20-25 people just dancing until the CF would come yell at us for quiet hours.
Watching movies in the basement and chilling with la Barge.
