Tower Court East 223


The N.Y. Times City Room blog takes a look at former college dorm rooms of the famous. This being the Times, the elite abodes at Yale, Princeton, and Harvard are examined, with campus maps for the first two.  Notable students from recent celebrity (Michelle Obama, Elena Kagan) to truly historic figures (FDR, JFK) are called out.  More interesting are the many comments which bring out that ol’ college lore, passed down from student to student.  From my alma mater, the tale of the Mayling Soong room in Tower Court, and from Smith, the residences of Sylvia Plath.  (Yes, I did have to look up my Wellesley dorm room number; but I can still rattle off my student ID#.)
