    Long hand and manual calculations. Party land lines. Turn dial TV's with 3 channels. 8 track tapes and maybe cassettes. Role your window up by hand. That's what it was when I was in school.

    No calculators, cell phones, computers, smart phones, email, internet, electric windows, remote control TV's.

    No big red carts like Frenchie has. Just drive to Cajun Field and catch the un-air conditioned bus to campus. Play cards at the top of the Mr. Cook.

    Things were great!!!!!

    I keep hearing about a new engineering building, but don't know how real it is. Can anyone confirm this, and if so, where are they planning on building it? In the same location? An entirely new building, or just expansion and renovation of Madison?

    Nice, he must have made quite an impression on you. I draw a huge blank when it comes to Thermo, I do remember the book was green

    Sounds like my college experience. Spent many hours upstairs at Burger Chef with my Erath/Delcambre crew.

    Well, slide rules may have still been around when I was there, I seem to remember some of the mechanical and civil guys talking about them. Another class we didn't have to take that others did was drafting, we had plenty of other classes to make up for it though.

    I took PL1 after we got the Honeywell and had a grad assistant for good amount of classes. He took me up to the lab which had a room full of various manufacturer personal computers that were sent to the university to see how they worked and identify any issues. Some were the size of a four drawer file cabinet. That was the first time I saw a touch screen monitor which used a pen to make contact with the glass for a lunar lander simulation game. I have to say I had big eyes for all the "new age" stuff in that room.

    Also remember playing what I think was the first version of Zork on the "games" portion of the system.

    I guess I think of Madison being behind the Computer Science Building, maybe part of the future Quad?

    Oliver Hall, which has Madison in its back yard. So I don't understand where he's referencing.

    Ok, but the parking lot is in front of Oliver. And that's where the new quad is planned. They plan on building 'wings' off the existing Oliver, forming a new Quad in the process.

    Never though of the parking lot as the front as the entrance faces Maddison

    Ha. Yeah, I guess it's a matter of perception as to what is front or back.

    But whether it's considered the front or back, what I really hope is not true is that they would build in the area between Oliver and Girard park. I think the idea of a new quad there would be very nice.
