Your New Home: Lane Hall

EVERYONE…. 52 days. That’s it.

They’re the biggest, they’re the mightiest, and they are always ready to rumble…. You guessed it, we are talking about Lane Hall!!! The top dogs on campus! Although it isn’t known for being an upscale residence, the sense of community outshines any flaw with the interior décor of the building. They also are the only residence with a sink in every room!! Woohoo!

You may be thinking that being a part of a big residence can be daunting, especially because there are so many faces, but this is not the case for Lane. Not only are they a part of a big family, they also become really close with their floor. The setup is all-male on the first two floors and the basement and top two floor is for females. There are also two different wings that divide Lane Hall (A and B). So whether you are a 2A boy or 4B girl, you are part of a smaller community that also becomes their own small family.

There are also many activities and events that Lane hosts throughout the year to celebrate being a pitbull, including Lane Hall Olympics and the annual Bandana Ceremony. This is where all of the new pitbulls get an official Lane Hall Bandana to wear at many of the house events, including the most popular event- LAser House Hockey Cup. HOO HA LANE HALL! (a cheer in which you will all will become familiar with). Although during the hockey game, they are on different sides on the rink, Lane and Fraser do have a lot of fun together. It is very easy to meet all of the rivals if you attend the Fast Friends night put on by both the HPs and VPs of Lane and Fraser. You will have a chance to meet a ton of Bishops Hall people by all going to the pit (the huge lounge in the foyer) and undergo a “speed dating” style social! So if Lane is the residence that you got put into, congrats! Get ready for a year full of making memories on the house up on the hill.
