WEST CAMPUS—In an unprecedented stroke of masterful genius, Boston University alumnus Matthew “Matt” Chress Jr. (CFA ’77) coined the name “Sleeper Hall” to refer to the dorm in which many students sleep. The Bunion interviewed Chress this week and learned his inspirational, mind-blowing story.

“Well, I was looking at the building, and I thought to myself, what do people do in there? The names started coming to me. Pregamer Hall, Super Smash Bros Hall, Sitting in the Common Room Trying to Make Friends Hall, Compaining About the Walk to CAS Hall. The possibilities were endless.” Rather than just using his last name like everyone else, Chress forged his own path and named it something everyone could relate to!

At press time, Chress could be found taking a refreshing sip from Drinky Fountain in West Campus.
