Subject: Re: dorm

Yes, a dorm's a dorm and a' that. But residence hall directors have

rebelled against the term. The argument here is that dorms are for

sleeping, and students do much more than that in dorms (ah, well, yes, I

guess they do/we did). Better still are the ones who hope we will all use

such terms as campus life centers.
