Favorite memory of EOU: Fall term of my freshmen year, there were five of us friends sitting in the common area of Dorion Hall (now Dorion Park) just laughing! I don’t remember how it started but once we all started laughing we couldn’t stop and it lasted for at least a half hour. We had so many weird looks directed towards us and none of us cared, we were having such an awesome time!
