I lived on Burton Third, which was considered one of the ‘bad’ living groups on West Campus. I won’t lie and say we were well-behaved model students all the time and I can understand why the administration is concerned about the liability. However Burton Third is where I met some of my closest friends that will be there for me for life. Despite all of the stupid shit we might have done in college we looked out for each other. That carried over into classwork and personal issues. I know I can count on those people. I don’t know if I would have met such a close group of friends if it wasn’t for MIT’s unique housing system. I would have succumbed to the firehose of MIT without the support of my fellow Bombers.
