The 7 SUNY Delhi Residence Halls As "Full House" Characters

The 7 SUNY Delhi Residence Halls As "Full House" Characters

Your favorite childhood TV show characters and how they match up to your campus residence halls.

SUNY Delhi is a unique campus where we get to spend about ten months meeting new people and getting to know each other. Most of the people you first become friends with are people in your residence hall (like your roommate, for example, the person who can be your best friend or your biggest enemy). It's easy to get to know the people on your floor. You all share your hall so it's pretty cool knowing the people in it. The Delhi college community can become pretty close. Here's a list of the residence halls in comparison to "Full House" characters.

1. Murphy Hall / Joey Gladstone.

I'll start off with Murphy simply for the fact that it was my first residence hall. Murphy Hall has a unique atmosphere full of all sorts of people. With the large open lounge space, its easy to come across most of the people in the building. Also with the windows throughout the halls, most of the faces become familiar. The RAs are usually pretty cool and friendly. They're the type of people, like Joey Gladstone, that you can go to when you need a friend but know how to stay professional and not let your friendship allow things to slide when it comes to their job. Murphy hall like Joey is humorous and always full of laughter (unless its quiet hours). Everyone is usually pretty laid back. Also like Joey Gladstone, this hall is full of character. They can be the life of the party but serious when they need to be. Its a good place to make tons of memories.

2. Russel Hall / Jesse Katsopolis.

Russel hall is the too cool for school crowd but they really have heart. Like Jesse you can find sources of rebellion, talent, and sometimes even challenge towards authority. You can even hear music playing in nearly every hall. But in the end they can be the most caring and considerate people you meet. This hall can be full of surprises. It isn't always the most organized place, but a lot of the people can find peace in chaos. It isn't about what it appears to be to everyone else, Its the people living there that make it a home.

3. Dubois Hall / Danny Tanner.

Dubois hall is the cleanest residence hall at SUNY Delhi. This is mainly because its full of nursing and vet sci. students who are some of the hardest working and most motivated students. Dubois is also pretty strict on enforcing the rules such as 24/7 quiet hours through out the girls corridors. Dubois is extremely family orientated. It's a friendly place and they really are like one big family. They're the type of people that I would go to for something like Danny's "Fatherly talks/ advice". Overall Dubois is very welcoming and comfortable.

4. Gerry Hall / Michelle Tanner.

Gerry Hall like Michelle Tanner likes to be pretty out there and all around fun. Reese and Linda are to Gerry Hall residents as Teddy and Denise were to Michelle; good friends. They make the hall a brighter and more interesting place. Gerry is located right next to C-store which gives them easy access to food. Everyone in Gerry is pretty likable and easy going. As Michelle would say, "you got it dude".

5. O'Connor Hall / Stephanie Tanner.

O'Connor has its own interesting style. It can be filled with people who have the least in common but that's why they can get along so well. They aren't afraid to be themselves and go after what they want. The walls of O'Connor are a bright blue, completely different from every other hall. It has a splash of color which makes it different and like Stephanie. Just don't make them angry because, "how rude!" The top floor only has 24 hour quiet hours like Dubois, but the rest of the hall can get pretty loud. It's filled with pretty ambitious people. They like to joke around a lot but O'Connor is the type of hall that has a pretty positive outlook on things and it will motivate you like Stephanie Tanner.

6. Catskill Hall / DJ Tanner.

Catskill Hall is pretty independent, or, like DJ, it wants to be. Living in Catskill is like DJ sharing a room with Stephanie. You're always going to have someone there for you when you need them or when you just get bored (well technically speaking five more people). Catskill can be pretty private but it can also open and fun. It's the perfect place to have a bunch of friends over. Like DJ, Catskill is like the oldest child because it isn't available to freshman, so they like to think they're a little more mature (even though most of us really aren't).

7. Riverview townhouses / Kimmy Gibbler.

The Riverview townhouse residents are like Kimmy because they're your neighbor. Sometimes they show up at unexpected times. They aren't always around, but they're still a part of the Delhi family and they are good friends.

If You've Ever Been Called Overly-Emotional Or Too Sensitive, This Is For You

Despite what they have told you, it's a gift.

Emotional: a word used often nowadays to insult someone for their sensitivity towards a multitude of things.

If you cry happy tears, you're emotional. If you express (even if it's in a healthy way) that something is bothering you, you're sensitive. If your hormones are in a funk and you just happen to be sad one day, you're emotional AND sensitive.

Let me tell you something that goes against everything people have probably ever told you. Being emotional and being sensitive are very, very good things. It's a gift. Your ability to empathize, sympathize, and sensitize yourself to your own situation and to others' situations is a true gift that many people don't possess, therefore many people do not understand.

Never let someone's negativity toward this gift of yours get you down. We are all guilty of bashing something that is unfamiliar to us: something that is different. But take pride in knowing God granted this special gift to you because He believes you will use it to make a difference someday, somehow.

This gift of yours was meant to be utilized. It would not be a part of you if you were not meant to use it. Because of this gift, you will change someone's life someday. You might be the only person that takes a little extra time to listen to someone's struggle when the rest of the world turns their backs.

In a world where a six-figure income is a significant determinant in the career someone pursues, you might be one of the few who decides to donate your time for no income at all. You might be the first friend someone thinks to call when they get good news, simply because they know you will be happy for them. You might be an incredible mother who takes too much time to nurture and raise beautiful children who will one day change the world.

To feel everything with every single part of your being is a truly wonderful thing. You love harder. You smile bigger. You feel more. What a beautiful thing! Could you imagine being the opposite of these things? Insensitive and emotionless?? Both are unhealthy, both aren't nearly as satisfying, and neither will get you anywhere worth going in life.

Imagine how much richer your life is because you love other's so hard. It might mean more heartache, but the reward is always worth the risk. Imagine how much richer your life is because you are overly appreciative of the beauty a simple sunset brings. Imagine how much richer your life is because you can be moved to tears by the lessons of someone else's story.

Embrace every part of who you are and be just that 100%. There will be people who criticize you for the size of your heart. Feel sorry for them. There are people who are dishonest. There are people who are manipulative. There are people who are downright malicious. And the one thing people say to put you down is "you feel too much." Hmm...

Sounds like more of a compliment to me. Just sayin'.

My First College Gal Pal Road Trip Was Amazing

Every girl should have one good girls trip.


In some way or another, everybody has a list of things they want to do in their lives before it's all over. After all, we're human. There's adventure to be had in every life. One thing I have always wanted to do before I grew too old and grey was go on a road trip with my gal pals to the beach. A couple weeks ago, I achieved this memorable milestone, and it allowed me to open up to new surroundings and experiences.

On this trip, I went with two of my friends from college, Kait and Lindsey, to visit my roommate Elizabeth in Virginia Beach. This was pretty big for Lindsey and I because neither of us had been to Virginia Beach before. Thankfully Elizabeth and Kait knew their way around the city, so we never got lost on our way to and fro.

Like most vacations, my favorite parts probably took place at the beach. I'm always at utter peace stomping through mushy sand or leaning down to splash the salty water that tries to knock my short self over. We took pictures and did something us college girls rarely have time to do especially in school: Relax.

The four of us did not live up to the crazed stereotype of girl trips in movies. Although I finally got a chance to sing along to Taylor Swift in a car ride with my friends, so that's always a plus. We played "Top Golf" one day, and by some miracle, I actually won the second game by a fair amount after much humiliation in the first one. We visited some of Elizabeth's family, and I finally got to meet her giant dog Apollo (I call him 'Wolf Dog'). Everyday was another chance to ask with enthusiasm: "So what are we doing today?"

Our trip wasn't like the movies where we all cried or confessed our deepest darkest secrets. Everything the four of us shared was laughter and this calm feeling of being at home, in the chaotic peace of each other's company. We understand each other a little better due to finally seeing what we're like outside of Longwood University. After this, all I can say is that we're most definitely planning the next one!
