My parents went to the same college, it is a very old prestigious school. They had a class together freshman year and they have been together ever since. It has always been mine and my parents dream for me to go to this same college. It is pretty hard to get into, so I have been working really hard and I am happy to say that I got my letter of acceptance in the mail last week. My parents were so excited for me and I couldn’t wait to go off to school. I was ready to leave right then and there. I knew that the campus was very old and that meant it wouldn’t have the same kind of amenities as a newer school. One thing my parents warned me about was that the dorms didn’t have a HVAC system. This meant that central air conditioning was not going to be a part of my everyday life anymore. I knew it would be an adjustment and the dorm did have an air conditioner window unit, so I was trying to stay positive. When I got settled into my dorm, it was the middle of the summer and it was very hot inside. I turned on my window unit, but it really didn’t do much to cool down my room. I hoped that as time went on I would get used to the lack of central air conditioning. For now I think I am going to have to go out and buy a fan to get me through the summer.
