Eaton House! The creative arts dorm of the six themed mini dorms. We are a creative community of wackos and psychos and some very quiet unassuming creatures. We are often the host of coffee houses, where students can show off their musical and poetic talent, we also try to do other artsy stuff...like the mural that never happened. We have even hosted a XXX rated Xmas party, and a gothic dance night. Fun!
The students from areas 1 and 2 like to call us and all other mini dorm residents "the freaks". We don't all mind too much, in fact, some of us are quite proud of the status! Where else can you find all the populations of hippies, hikers, nerds, engineers, and art feaks all living within earshot of each other? Only in the minis. Our dorms are very small (only 50 people in each) and our rooms are even smaller. Our walls are paper thin and there is a surprising resounding echo off of the buildings.The University of New Hampshire has info on our community: The Minidorms
Whoa, I almost forgot one of the most important things about Eaton House: that which we hold sacred. The Couch Boat. It has been in existence for years now, and when it is not here we feel lost and confused and violated. All it is, is two of the couches in the lounge, pushed together facing each other creating a big cushy happy place in the middle of the room. You will always find people there, hanging out, doing homework, sleeping, watching TV, etc. Sometimes other interesting things happen on the couch boat.

Welcome to Eaton House, its resdidents and honorary resdidents (those who appear to live here but don't)
This is me inside a dryer. One night, for fun, we decided to climb into the dryers and take pictures.....
Pam and Diane are the lovely ladies pictured here. They are the lucky ones that get to clean up after us kids. They are fabulous women and we love them to death.
