Residential Life in Cilley Hall

I live in Cilley Hall, clearly the best dorm on campus. Each dorm has a rival dorm and ours is Wentworth Hall, but there’s not much competition. Some of the best things about Cilley include C-ball, impromptu Halo nights, and the people. C-ball is a sport created by the young men in Cilley Hall that involves the benches by the front door and some kind of ball. It’s similar to volleyball but there are additional rules. There are two players per team and the boundaries are very questionable so you can win points if you argue hard enough. I learned how to play fall term and honestly, it doesn’t even matter if you win or lose because you become tighter with the brothers you live with. Next are impromptu Halo nights (called “sticks”) which have been a part the Cilley culture for quite a bit. I started playing winter term and I was terrible but with enough positive and negative reinforcement from upper class men  I gradually became better. The reward for winning is extreme bragging rights, so games can get really intense. Finally, the individual people in Cilley are amazing. They are always there for you and have been through what you have been through so they can always relate to you and give you great advice. We talk about anything: girls, guys, school, arts, music, life. I love my homies in Cilley.
