Lifetime friendships formed in closeness of Language Houses

There are 1 comment on the Chico Enterprise-Record story from Feb 7, 2010, titled Lifetime friendships formed in closeness of Language Houses. In it, Chico Enterprise-Record reports that:

Despite its name, the German House was never completely occupied by Germans. Instead, the house, one of the six so-called Language Houses that stand on West Third Street between Chestnut and Hazel streets, was filled with a mix of Chico State students and exchange students from the University of Mainz in Germany.

I lived in the German house for three semesters in 1975-76 and have to say it was the best living situation one could have in college. It was a very tight knit block with many collective activities. Many of us studied together, played together, cooked together, and of course, everyone knew who was sleeping with whom. lol I actually still have a couple of German House tee shirts from then, and the German House sign I got when they closed it down in the 1980s. It was really a blast!!
