Here are records from previous years, kept around for future reference.

For past hall chairs, see Hall Chair.

Floor Pi

The old website is on the Internet Archive.

Third West didn't seem to be named "Floor Pi" until at least 2001, based on a recovered rush pamphlet, although the joke was around since at least then. The old symbol for Third West is a sideways 3, with three arrows replacing each of its points, pointing northwest. This symbol can still be found in one of the murals on the floor.

This wiki started in October 2007. The earliest Main Page edit is [1], with the current logo being uploaded soon after.

Speculation at this point, but the current hall culture is probably younger than twenty years old. It's unclear what Third West was like before that. Needs more research.

  • Slush is unknown. Why? Because the budget was done before all outstanding receipts were submitted and while there were outstanding checks. What is slush used for? Primarily for when the hall unexpectedly needs to spend money to cover your ass. About how much? We really don't know, how about $100?
