A while back President Hennessey spoke in Branner Hall. One of the residents asked him if its true that in the future Branner is going to become graduate residences. I think he responded that Stanford's long term plans in terms of housing are that basically as freshmen we all have the same kind of housing instead of the discrepancies we have now, so Branner wont remain all frosh anymore. Wilbur and Stern will be broken down and along with Crothers will become UG housing. Im not so sure about the rest. But they are planning a lot of changes to deal with the increase in numbers of the freshman class.
It is weird to think that maybe 10 or 20 years from now, the dorms we live in might not be there at all!
