Kass, Ashley, and myself have submitted a video to Butler’s My Favorite Place contest.
Watch the video! Then I’m going to tell you a story that would otherwise be a spoiler.
Okay. Did you watch it? QUIZ TIME: What was the song we used?
All right. The story. I think it was toward the end of freshman year that the three of us were presented with the challenge of solidifying our housing plans for sophomore year. This required finding the Office of Residential Life, which is on the third floor of Atherton Union. As freshman, we didn’t really know that there was a third floor of Atherton Union. Cautiously, we ventured up the spiraling staircase, the walls of which showcased the faces of Class Presidents past.
The moment we reach the first floor, we turn into a hallway of offices. It’s very easy to miss, but just as you enter the hallway from the staircase, there’s a wood-framed doorway leading into what looks like a closet. There’s a glass panel in the door, but the tiny “closet” is dark.
Despite there being only wires left, we instantly knew it was a phone booth. And then, we tried to cram all three of us inside. (We failed.) Since that fateful afternoon, we’ve paid the phone booth many a visit. It was even a key location in the great Indy Mob Job of ’09.
So that’s that. We’ve been intrigued by the Atherton Union phone booth since our first year here, and it seemed only fitting to share its presence with the rest of the world.

Edit: We now have text wrapping powers? HOLY GUACAMOLE, BATMAN!!
