I Grow Old, I Grow Old

Texas Exes | Jester Center Gets Snazzy Updates After 41 Years: "Its own ZIP code is gone, but beds for 3,066 people — more than in some entire Texas towns — remain.

Forty-one years later, Jester Center is still one of the largest residence halls any university has ever built. But the epic dorm has come a long way, especially in the past few years."

This dorm opened ten years after I entered the university. It's on the site of what was the intramural field when I was an undergrad. In 1969, I'd returned to Austin to graduate school, and I still think of Jester as "the new dorm."
