Erin Schultek ’05 wrote in to find out if her old house, 111 Evanston, had been updated since she graduated. After finding relics from the ’70s in their unlocked attic, the five senior women who live there now think it might be due for an upgrade.

Take a look back on the house with housemates from 2005.

What’s the best part about living on Evanston? “The location,” the housemates said. “It’s close to everything.” And, of course, they have a great view of it all from their porch.A small bedroom and entry hallway make up the front of the house. “It probably used to be one big room that they put a wall in to make another bedroom,” one housemate said. Until their fifth roommate returned from studying abroad, the four senior women used this space for storage and crashing guests.“Adam” has been a fixture in the living room since the five women first lived together on Stonemill Road last year. “Sometimes we dress him up,” one housemate said.“Did we mention that door leads to nowhere?” a housemate said. The women think a door leading outside still might exist beneath layers of paint and new siding. “Yeah, this house has ‘character.’”Plentiful storage and counter space are hot commodities in UD houses. The busy roommates admit they don’t cook often now that so many yummy dining options are available close by in Virginia W. Kettering Residence Hall.Shelves and shower caddies help the five roommates keep track of their products in the house’s only bathroom.Three of the five housemates are from Chicago. One who lives in this room admits to having stolen the Blue Line poster while riding the L last year.The residents of this room can access the attic through a door behind the bed on the left.When they explored the attic earlier this year, they found a dated Milano’s menu and countless fliers like these from the 1970s.This double bedroom is bursting with colorful accents and Greek memorabilia. All five housemates are involved in the Pi Beta Phi and Alpha Phi sororities.As sunny weather rolls in, this grassy backyard is just crying out for a kiddie pool.
