"Fond memories of office spaces"

Anonymous

My first faculty office at CLU was a small closet (no windows) in the Benson House. When I became the director of the Counseling and Guidance Program I was "upgraded" to an office that was constructed by an employee's son. The floor was on a slant and if I had dropped a pen or pencil I had to chase it before it rolled away. Small lizards frequently visited through the small holes beneath the door and window.

Despite these conditions, I have fond memories of sitting around the kitchen table where faculty meetings both formal and informal, were held. Working in a house supported the feelings of family among the faculty and staff. This atmosphere was readily felt by our students who often reported that they were well cared for.

I guess I too felt lucky- at least I wasn't assigned to the bathroom upstairs! Nowadays, I am located in the beautifully modern Ed. Tech building- but some days I miss the Benson House.
