With three floors of space, it’s no wonder that the St. Miguel Townhouses are full of such interesting decorations. The girls in B10 wasted no time turning their townhouse into an eclectic student work of art.
On entering the townhouse, one will notice that much of the available wall space in the living room area is adorned with “Happy Birthday!” streamers. Next to the television and PlayStation, the girls have installed a standing lamp that becomes a glittering disco light in the dark.
Posters with Trainspotting and Family Guy quotes hang around the room, and simmering quietly on the stove sits a tea kettle. Senior English major Lauren Balliet has incorporated her rice steamer in the house’s daily meals.
“I can finally make my own food,” Balliet stated triumphantly. “Now I know what I’m eating.”
The second floor houses Balliet and junior elementary special education major Ashley Mancuso. Mancuso’s walls are littered with Monty Python posters and pages from a calendar of nuns: Nuns eating ice cream, nuns playing pool and nuns generally being crazy.
The stairwell has a poster at each landing, beginning with a The Tudors promotional movie poster and climbing up to a sexual exposure chart that looks like it was snagged out of a junior high school’s sexual education class.
The third floor is where senior speech pathology major Larissa Meyer, junior elementary, special education major Melissa Palfy and senior speech pathology major Christina Currie reside.
Meyer’s room is more musically inclined, with Bob Dylan posters lining the walls, as well as various Hello Kitty products scattered on top of desks and dresser tops.
Currie and Palfy share a room, and have filled it to capacity. Inside the room are terrariums with plastic toy animals inside that compensate for the school’s no pets policy.
“It’s much nicer than North Dorms,” said Balliet.email@example.com
