|I was housed the first year in Bagwell Dorm. NC State's admission policy is still to try to give access
||00:00:00.000 - 00:00:13.022
|to people around the state and they were at that point admitting large numbers of students
||00:00:13.022 - 00:00:21.230
|with the full expectation they would be gone by Christmas, so I had three people in a two-person room with two closets.
||00:00:21.230 - 00:00:31.276
|They did move another bed in,but it was pretty miserable. In engineering triangles are very stable structures
||00:00:31.276 - 00:00:43.378
|but in human relations triangles are not good. We got along okay but it was not one of the best things to do.
||00:00:43.378 - 00:00:52.960
|Then I lived in Turlington and by that time had found a roommate who was in my field and who remains a friend to this day.
||00:00:52.960 - 00:01:07.369
|In fact he and I continued on to graduate school here so we were friends as students at NC State for nine years,
||00:01:07.369 - 00:01:17.822
|so we have deep roots together. Then Bragaw had just been opened, with its boomerang shape and outdoor walkways,
||00:01:17.822 - 00:01:29.394
|and so I spent the remaining two years there. So I got a good dose of student life and enjoyed living on campus,
||00:01:29.394 - 00:01:42.502
|and it was not too big a jump from high school here.
||00:01:42.502 - 00:01:49.079
