Indiana University Graduation Day 1999

Indiana University Graduation 1999

This week’s entry for Throwback Thursday comes from IU Graduation Day 1999. This was originally posted as the Picture of the Week for January 21st, 2002 with the following caption: “We’re smiling for 2 reasons. One, it’s graduation day and we’re celebrating the departure of the last remaining 406’ers as they journey into the great beyond known as the “real world”. Two, there’s an awful lot of ass grabbing going on here.” Would you just … Continue reading

Life As Floyd

Today’s Throwback Thursday spotlights our good buddy Floyd. Floyd came to IU the same time we all did and his nickname was derived from his hometown, Floyds Knobbs.

That needs to be your profile picture everywhere sir… Do you have any other 406 related photos? Send … Continue reading

The 406 Northlane Move Out Letter

406 Northlane Front Door

For Throwback Thursday I wanted to share something that I recovered when I was removing some stuff from the server where this site was originally hosted. This is the letter that we received the day we finally moved out of 406. Looking back at it now it’s certainly not something I’m proud of, but it definitely brings back some very vivid, and dare I say outstanding, memories. On a side note, our landlady Rachel passed … Continue reading
