Thoughts from the two greatest minds ever to graduate from Hampshire...|
Elliott Smith, talking about Greenwich, our donut-shaped apartment buildings:
Then there were these other dorm type places that you moved to after the dorms called MODS, but they’re still on campus. I briefly lived in a so-called MOD. Modular housing. It was all put up by the army in a day. That’s what the story was and I believe it after living there.

And Philip, my brilliant roommate in that second donut from the left, talking about the feeling of finishing his dissertation:
I suppose the point of saying this is partly that I'm not particularly adept at predicting what's going to happen next, but also that knowing that something is going to happen is not a precondition for being pleased about it afterward. Which is to say, that despite the sensation of having just unexpectedly given birth to a hippopotamus, I'm quite taken with the little beast, so I think I'll just keep it and see what happens next.
