Another favorite was the Silliman dining hall. It was the largest of any residential college, which guaranteed lively conversations at all hours. The food was surprisingly good and the desserts were outstanding (the rumor was that the chef had served on Gen. MacArthur’s staff). I always felt that the dining hall was the “sixth classroom”, and that time spent there was equal to any spent at the library. It was a place that nourished both body and soul.
