My Old House: 1316 Brown St.

A 12-student house on Brown Street turned into Kappa Delta’s UD home last August. After the sorority became established on campus in 2013, Kappa Delta soon earned a temporary house on Stonemill Road. But as the Greek organization began flourishing, KD made 1316 Brown St., its official home. The newly renovated five-bedroom and one group bathroom house is roomy enough for 10 KD council members. The front door, however, is always open to its general chapter members.

My Old House: 411 Lowes St.

A pale yellow house stands at the end of the 400 block of Lowes. Inside, lives two sets of sorority bigs and littles, and one honorary Theta Phi Alpha. The five senior residents are living together for the second year in a row, but this time, they each have their own room, and there are three bathrooms split among the group. The house is handicap accessible, but for now, it is used as a “student engagement” theme house that the housemates gained through the Special Interest Housing process.

The newly renovated exterior of the three-bedroom, one-bathroom house built in 1909 has a mystery tomato plant in the spacious backyard, small doors that turn moving into a game of Tetris, and is filled with six junior residents who say that although they spend a decent amount of time cooking, Jimmy John’s drivers are their most frequent visitors.

My Old House: 339 Stonemill

The residents of 339 Stonemill Road met during their first year, from both the rowing club and their shared floor in Marycrest. They grew closer during their second year in Virgina W. Kettering Residence Hall and their third year in Gardens next to Campus South—where they enjoyed wizarding-themed games and honing their cooking skills. Their senior year, they joked that they “just kinda picked up” their last housemate, though they have known him well for two years. All of the roommates are in the engineering school and plan to graduate in May 2017.

My Old House: 204 Lawnview Ave.

Despite having to keep their windows open during a cold winter week, the residents of 204 Lawnview really enjoyed their time living in the student neighborhood, said Kathie Coates Buono ’83.

After not having any luck as sophomores through the housing assignment system, the roommates decided to pursue other options heading into their junior year. This led them to 204 Lawnview.

“We were the first students to live in the house,” Buono said.

The couple who lived in the house before them were UD graduates and had decided to move into another home but still wanted to keep the first house. This allowed Buono and her roommates to rent it.

“We loved the house because it had a great porch,” Buono said, noting that on the first Wednesday of each semester, she and her roommates would host a “Wild and Wonderful Wednesday” porch party.

The house also featured a garage, which Buono said was very unusual at the time. Also unusual was the housemates’ response to a mishap. One winter, smoke filled the house thanks to a distracted visitor whose cigarette got a bit too close to some pillows, causing them to smolder. The residents were forced to keep their windows open an entire week to air out the house. To stay warm, the roommates gathered around desk lamps in their rooms.

Although the winter months were cold, the residents decided to stay in the house for their senior year.

“UD is all about the people,” Buono said. “We had a lot of fun. The sense of community and being able to live in an area with so many students; we were always over at each other’s houses. We loved it. We didn’t talk about moving at all.”

Take a tour of this house with today’s residents.
