Travel Tips for Fairfax

Lecture Hall

by b1bob

Most of the time spent here was in classes that were too big for a traditional classroom. In either class, Astronomy 101 or Spanish 325 on the works of Carlos Fuentes, I didn't get as much out of it on account of the class size. There were 2 rooms separated by a lobby with vending machines. The smaller room seated about 75 people- still too big for a class. The larger one seats about 300 and was styled like a movie house with rows of folding seats descending to the bottom where the lecturer would teach the class. When I wasn't attending oversized classes there, they did occasionally open the big lecture hall at the weekends for dollar (movie) night where I saw "Home Alone", my favourite movie overall, for the first time just before I graduated.

Woodlawn Plantation

by seagoingJLW

Woodlawn, which was built between 1899 and 1895, was the home of Eleanor Custis (Martha Washington's granddaughter) and Lawrence Lewis (George Washington's nephew. ) It was a wedding present from George Washington.

The plantation served as Camp Davis, a Confederate training faacility during the Civil War. It is located at 9000 Richmond Highway, Alexandria (not the city) Phone: 703-780-4000

Student Union Building 2

by b1bob

S.U.B. II is a very peculiarly designed building. From the Commons dormitories where I lived from 1987-'89, you entered from the 3rd floor. On that floor are meeting rooms and reception halls. You go down one floor and you reach the dining hall. That may not be a good thing. The food was so bad the toast had bones. The cafeteria staff was so dumb they messed up the recipe for ice! You go down to the bottom floor and the main thing was the book store. However, in the years since my graduation it moved to the Johnson Center where it is much bigger and better.

President's Park

by b1bob

President's Park is the dormitory complex I lived in my last two years at G.M.U. (1989-'91). Washington Hall is the building, appropraiately enough, on the far right of the photo. Here, I had the best of all worlds- a single room (so I could kick anybody out when I got tired of them) and great neighbours. It was a little farther out from classes and the dining hall, but I didn't mind trading off extra time to get to class for the peace of mind that I wouldn't be penny locked in my room or have someone slide a pear with an M-80 under the loo stall.

McLean

by b1bob

McLean is rather an upmarket bedroom community in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. It has become a tradition to visit a university friend up here and go to Slade's American Grill. This one is located at Tysons Corner. There used to be one in Arlington's Ballston Common, closer to the metro line. However, as long as there's a Slade's I'm happy.

A most unusual restaurant called Evans Farm Inn was a McLean instution for 42 years until it closed in 1999.

Tysons Corner is a nice place to shop or just walk around and look.

There may be no monuments or tourist traps in McLean, but it's a nice place to shop and dine.
