    Alums What do You miss?

    One thing, from your days at ISU, what do you miss the most?
    For me, I was in a band, we rehearsed at the M-Shop, then went to Cy's Roost for burgers and beers and darts. What a great way to bond. What was it for you?


    There can be only one.

    Don't remember his name, but in the late 80's there was a guy from Decorah (I think) that would lead everyone in the Y.M.C.A. song at the tailgates in the North lot of JTS just before everyone would head in to the FB game. We were all pumped by that guy and his antics. What a fun time. Also miss playing intramural broom ball at midnight, and playing 500 and Risk in the hall lounges of the Towers all night long.

    The college life..

    and a portion of that, the weekly wednesday night group that started as a couple of us studying for a physics class and over the next 4 years morphed into a bigger and bigger group that got together every week for various levels of drinking.

    Ah, yes, The ISU Law that states a group of study partners must sustain a viable level of drinking after regular study contact.

    Home Team Pizza??? If that's it, I loved that place and I think it closed down my freshman or soph year..

    I do miss living on Wood St. and have some sweet house parties, especially on football game weekends and VEISHEA. If I could choose one year live again, it would have to be my Junior year when we lived in that house.
