6 » Richmond, 6th Floor

There were 10 of us as new residents in September, 1955. We were given rooms on the 6th floor of Richmond. We must have been up and down the stairs 20 times a day. We became good friends and shared college life and new experiences. Bowling, shopping, mixers with other college groups and study groups were all part of a new life at Towson.

There were 10 of us as new residents in September, 1955. We were given rooms on the 6th floor of Richmond. We must have been up and down the stairs 20 times a day. We became good friends and shared college life and new experiences. Bowling, shopping, mixers with other college groups and study groups were all part of a new life at Towson. The first time being independent and on our own was a challenge and was liberating. We became such good friends. There was always someone to share a meal, go to a game or just hang out with from our floor. Sharing this brings back good memories.

When I came to Towson State Teachers College in 1951, I was a nervous young girl from the small town of Mountain Lake Park in the western mountains. My assigned roommate on the 6th floor (a walk-up) was also scared. She is Pat Skirven from the small town of Rock Hall on the Eastern Shore. We lived about as far as you could from each other to still be in Maryland. Pat had never seen a mountain, and I had never seen the ocean or a blue crab. We learned a lot from each other and our four 6th floor buddies. Study time in rooms was from 7:00PM to 10:00PM. We had a half hour of REC time and then it was back in our cells. It took us a while to figure out why some other girls went to the library to study. We just thought they were studious, not that they escaped the confines and met BOYS! We moved from the second floor our last two years and into a two room, (three to a room) with a connecting bath. That was 6 girls for one sink, one tub, and one toilet--What Fun. We were in heaven. The six of us are still good friends. We communicate often and get together whenever possible. It was a wonderful and educational experience.
