    Re: Larch

    MWL is a great place to begin your college career. Larch 8th floor was a good time.

    Your hall director (Linda Garbisch) is AWESOME- she was a mentor to me for the past three years, and is a really fun lady. Make sure to talk to her!

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: Larch

    Larch 7 was pretty good for 1 semester, COED floors are "interesting" with teenagers in their first few weeks living with no parents, curfews, or rules. With that being said I will push my daughter to live in an all girls dorm/sorority when she goes to college.

    My experience at least (Lived in Friley), people who lived in mwl seemed to meet MORE people FASTER. Looked like a fun time, I was jealous.

    You think THAT is going to fix things!?!?

    And Larch was a blast for me. Some will tell you it sucks, but I choose to believe they didn't bother trying to make it any kind of fun. Your CA will have a lot to do with whether your floor is great or sucks.

    I will second that. I was on 8th floor Larch as well for my freshman year. Jack Daniel's painted elevator door. Good times.

    Still have good friends I keep in contact with from my freshman year and I can't say that about a lot of the other friendships I made throughout the rest of my college career. You have to live in the dorms to start. If you don't, you will never live there and will flat miss out on a great experience.

    Re: Larch

    Lived on 2nd floor of Larch, which was coed. There were definitely relationships but it was more like having a lot of sisters.

    Some of my closest friends to this day are from my days living in Larch. As a matter of fact, I was so close with one of them, I married her!

    Re: Larch

    I lived on an all-male floor on Willow. That's the definition of slummin' it. I've heard Larch is in the middle as far as niceness goes at MWL.

    Re: Larch

    Larch is a blast. Like people said, its a good time you'll barely remember. I had a pretty easy going CA so we got away with a lot of stuff. Its the middle of the pack of MWL. Still keep in touch with a lot of people from my floor, and always run into people on the weekends that were in the dorm. You meet a lot of people very quickly it seems like everyone is more socialized more. Keep your door open the first few days will help you meet a lot of people. Oh the fond memories, feels like its been longer then 2 years.

    Prepare yourself for a lot of drunken pulls of the fire alarms, especially the first few weeks... and the elevators breaking down during football season.
