Illinois State University

So I was lucky enough this weekend to check out another university in the Midwest. Kieth took some time on Saturday morning to give us a tour of Bloomington/Normal, and Illinois State University. ISU is where Layne's cousin Chad and his wife Monica went to college. It was really nice to get to see the town where they had their college experience, and get to know the town as well.

One thing that blew my mind was Watterson Towers, one of the residence halls on campus. It's a twenty-eight story twin tower complex, and is one of the largest college dorms in the world. It houses 2,200 students every year. Can you imagine what move in day must be like?
Of course, I made Keith drive by several of the Greek houses at ISU. We have a Zeta chapter there. Chad was a Sigma Chi, and Monica was a Tri Delta. Below is a picture of her sorority house. I was so glad to get to check it out!

You're too cute! I'm glad you got to see it. When we're in town for Keith and Casse's wedding we'll show you ISU nightlife like we used to do it! :) Pub II cheeseballs and downtown Bloomington!
They have done SO much building since we were there, the construction had just started, but I haven't been on the quad in ages. I'm for sure this summer going to take the kids on a walk through it.
