It was Sellery. It was...well, I still prefer UIUC over that mess.

Personally, I thought the UIUC dorms were better. And of course, our local university dorms are apparently even better than that.
Which dorm did you say in at Wisconsin? Ogg was way nicer than Chadbourne and Sellery, so if you stayed in Chadbourne or Sellery, your lower opinion of Wisconsin dorms would be more understandable than if you stayed in Ogg.
We went to breakfast for Ogg once. It was a lot nicer than Sellery but Sellery wasn't as bad as everyone said it would be. At least there weren't any weird blood stains in the girls' floor.
My friend and I still go around saying "Sellery Hall".
Dorms were a bunch of fun last year. Plus everything is within walking distance so you don't really need any cars. Wisconsin had everything you needed within walking distance.

From what I can tell, all the dorms in the Libra Community at UCF are nearly identical to each other, so there won't be as much disparity in quality this year.
Dorms were a bunch of fun last year.
I really do think that the dorm experience was part of what made nationals so fun last year.

I was looking at the floor plan of the dorms at Nats this year and they don't look too bad at all
and yeah we stayed at Sellery - still better than illinois...
as far as the experience- alot of our stories do come from staying in the dorms... :)
No matter what the experiment's result, there will always be someone eager to:(a) misinterpret it(b) fake it, or (c) believe it supports his own pet theory.

We're not staying in dorms; instead we'll be in the Hampton Inn.

BTW is anyone else going to Universal Studios?

I'm pretty sure the majority of Pilgrimage Homeschool is taking hotels. Most of us will be at Residence Inn. I might be at Hampton Inn, but most likely Residence.

Our coach told us - I believe he received the information in an email.
