I was a Scott House veteran too, having survived the water fights (with trash cans and pilfered chem hoses) & the flush flood in 1969. My 3 roomies and I lived on the 2nd floor with a window over the lobby roof. If the RA left his window open, we'd go out on the roof & into his room to remove and hide all his furniture. Good times for undergrads.
And OSU had maids to clean the rooms and bathrooms once a week. So there was little grunginess. Does that not happen anymore?
