    Son gets same dorm room as dad

    Be interesting to know if this has happened at Iowa State?
    What are the odds? Son gets same dorm room as dad - Yahoo! News
    Following in his father's footsteps at Michigan State University is one thing. But moving into in the same dorm room his dad did three decades ago has been a coincidence like no other for Mike Robell.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Actually I know a case where this exact same thing happened at ISU a couple years ago. Res Life works in mysterious ways.

    Re: Son gets same dorm room as dad

    I had a similar thing happen to me. I was working in Illinois about 4 years after graduating from ISU. I met a co-worker and found out that her brother was at ISU. Making conversation, I asked which dorm he lived in.

    "Towers"...me, too!

    "Wallace"...me, too!

    "5th Floor"...No way, me,too!

    "5324"...You have got to be kidding me.

    Yep, the exact same room as me. Just like this story, what are the odds of that?

    You remember your dorm room number?

    I remember the location of my dorm room and could find it easily if I went to look right now, but I don't remember the number at all.

    I do, but mostly because I have told this story many times. It still blows my mind.

    Re: Son gets same dorm room as dad

    8320 Storms Lovelace same room as dad. Completely random, however I did say I wanted to live in towers and at the time underclassmen only lived in Storms and Knapp, but still pretty remarkable.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    The only one I'm unsure about is Helser-Woodrow, and it's not like I can go check it as it's been torn down for about 8 years now

    I never lived in the dorms so I wouldn't be able to have this kind of story.

    Re: Son gets same dorm room as dad

    Shopping at Hy-Vee a month or so ago, ran into a guy I worked with in food service at the towers. Neither of us remembered one another's names - but we both knew exactly how we knew each other.

    I know I was 5th floor Wallace, but have no idea what the room numbers were for the 2 rooms I stayed in when I was up there. The 2nd was the NW corner.

    I missed my Dad's old room by about 6 doors. I was on the end of converse and he was south down that hallway just before the stairwell.

    This kind of thing happens a lot more than you'd think.

    Re: Son gets same dorm room as dad

    I remember hearing stories of people having similar situations or atleast coming close...


    As for me, 5634 then 5641 Friley Lorch-Russell before moving to 225 N Hyland ave.

    Spent a summer in Freddy, 1133 I think... (or 34, whatever it is there)

    Though I'm not too far out of school yet...


    Funny story about 5641 - I lived in 5634 during the VEISHEA Riot of 2004... while watchign the riot from Friley I got tear gassed in 5641 (I still maintain that wasn't one of the better moves the Ames PD could have made that night... firing tear gas upwind of Friley) Of course the next year I'm in that same room.

    Also like the location of 5641... near the bathroom, the waterfountain, and over looked the intersection of Lincoln and Welch. Let me say, laser pointers + drunks waiting for the drunk bus = fun combination...

    Also good for advertising things... like say your desire to beat an instate oppoent, and then when you do, it's good for broadcasting that to the town for the rest of the school year...


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!
