yeah, U of I is what I like to call "Step 0" in the 12 step program. Step 1 is admitting you have a problem, but Step 0 is going out and getting the problem

You know the funny thing is I actually had a friend that turned into a boozer when he got into UIUC. He actually had to go to AA to sober up. Well....I guess it's really not funny...But ironic like a mofo.

I managed to graduate early even though I went to less than 50% of my classes and nearly drank myself to death. I went to the bar daily my last semester with a buddy that got his mail at the bar. He flunked out, I graduated.

a good friend of mine had his undergrad, two masters, and PhD by 26....and he held his office hours at BW3, where we both worked nights.
Back then, BW3 on campus was more a bar than a restaurant.

Murphy's is still a cool place to go, but it lost the character of the old bar. It is amazing how the campus has changed.

I remeber getting retarded (won't elaborate) one night with a couple buddies and ended up driving on the back roads of Chambana and accidently ending up in an old airplane hanger near the outskirts of the university airport. We saw this little plane on it's belly, burnt and gutted out. We than started to hypothesis what explanation was the correct one. I said it was shot down by chambana townies with mullets and van halen t shirts. We found out later that it actually was a demo that the fire department used for rookie firfighters, on how to put out small airplane fires.

DUDE, my most memorable memories were my sophemore year. I lived in the Chalmers place apartments (Chalmers and Wright) next to some sorority. We lived on the third floor so we had a killer view of their roof/sun tanning porch. Our balcony was directly facing their balconies/roof. By the end of the school year these chics were so cool with us that they would party with us. I was 1/2 a block away from the quad. Perfect. Anyone know this apartment complex?

And as I remember from the second balcony we could get a decent glimpse of the Theta's balcony too. That sorority was on wright and daniels.... that was a fun place to live. Too bad I was dating my wife at the time.
