  1. Back in 1994 I was a student a western Oregon University(then Western Oregon State College). I was dating a girl who lived in Todd Hall. I went to pick her up for a party one spring, like always I announced “man on the floor”, not that those girls were real modest, or seemed to care at all. However, Mrs. Todd made it very clear she did not want a man in her dorm. Twice I was hit in the back with objects and when I reached Brook’s door a small aluminum object, just heavy enough to get my attention hit me in the side of the head. It was obvious by The objects she chose she didn’t want to hurt me, she just didn’t want a man in her dorm.
