When you get into college, I’m telling you now it is going to be nothing like the movies you’ve grown up on. The dorms are not that nice, the frats are not that wild, and the professors are not always that mean. In fact, half the time the professors will sympathize with you because the lot of you will often be in the same problems together. At my university, we have a sprawling array of buildings from all different time periods. The core four buildings are the original set from when the university was first a teaching school in the 1800s. These buildings are always incredibly hot in the winter due to the ancient industrial boilers they all have in their basements for heating. However, in the summer they are also so hot because these buildings don’t have central air conditioning. Instead they have these little window AC units which may or may not work depending on the day of the week and the hour of the day. Then you have the arts and sciences complex that is really two buildings connected by one hallway. The arts half tends to be warmer in the morning due to the sun being right on it, but cooler in the afternoon when the sun shifts. Yet the arts and sciences building is often incredibly cold, because it has both central heating and cooling since it was built in the 90s. Then you’ll often want a sweater even in the summer to keep warm. So you see, the really necessity in college is just to dress in layers. If you’re always comfy, you’ll be focused on your studies.
