Meet The Lucky Residents Of Room 420 Stone Hall
Stoners everywhere embrace the sacred day of April 20. Penn State stoners are no exception, of course. In honor of the 4/20 festivities today, we hunted down two roomies who — in our opinion — won the residency jackpot. Freshmen Shannon Gavin and Sara Stover were graced with not only room 420, but the coveted room 420 Stone Hall.
The freshmen metropolis otherwise known as East Halls is the largest residence hall complex on campus. Though many freshmen reside in other halls such as Pollock and West, East is by far the most common place for a first-year Penn State student to live. With 14 coed halls, there’s no denying it: this is where freshmen thrive.
Stone Hall is nestled in the very back of East Halls and it overlooks the softball field. When it comes to which specific hall in East you’ll be assigned, it’s a toss-up left to the housing Gods who were clearly smiling upon Gavin and Stover.
Gavin and Stover were randomly assigned roommates. Though many freshmen seek their class Facebook class page to track down a suitable roommate, the two thought taking the risk would be worth it — and it was! The two get along wonderfully, and have even decided to live together next year in Park Hill downtown.
Hailing from Pittsburgh, Gavin is studying Bio Behavioral Health and Annapolis, Maryland native Stover is studying Management. They really hit it off when they both decided to join an intramural flag football team. The pair also enjoyed involvement in the THON organization Ohana this year. The two had other options when applying to colleges, but both knew deep down that Penn State was going to be their home.
“The minute we saw we were assigned room 420 in Stone Hall, we knew it was going to be a fun year,” Gavin laughed.
“We don’t really smoke weed, but I still think it’s really funny and a great time.” Stover explained.
The group chat name for the fourth floor of Stone Hall is even dubbed “Fourth Floor Stoners.” Though the girls don’t dabble in marijuana themselves, they claim the boys down the hall do.
“It’s ironic that we live here while some real stoners are just down the hall,” Gavin laughed. We’re sure the 420 friendly folks a few doors down wonder what might’ve been.
We can only hope the future descendants of 420 Stone Hall live up to such a notable address. And who knows? Maybe they’ll even be able to blaze it without a worry.
