Transcript dorm days Freshmen Matt Dorsey and Caleb Comstock began to move into their dorms the Thursday before school started. The residence halls officially opened up the Wednesday before the semester began. Photo by Nora Segura the art or dorm lire Bonding and (U>rtrtecting urith, the, COMMMMtV Bad food, lack of sleep, and an intense social life are all the core elements that make up the dorm life experience. There is nothing like glancing up at your clock while studying and realizing you have five minutes to get that half-pint mint chocolate chip ice cream before the convenience store closes. How nice it was to not have parents to answer to, you thought as you indulged that last bite of ice cream along with the hundreds of other people that have just stopped by for no other purpose but to say "hi" at 1 a.m. "Living at the dorms is a great experience for all freshman, I am glad I did it;' junior Stephenie Morrison said. "You meet some great people and always know a familiar face on campus:' Upon meeting friends and giving up much sleep, students can get a feel for the cougar environment by residing on campus. Students are more likely to become involved in UH activities and receive leadership opportunities. "By living at the dorms, I became more involved and was able to meet new people through different organizations and had more opportunities to be in leadership positions',' junior Jake Hughey said. Besides the dreadful thought of making that long hike to horizons each evening for that home-cooked meal, the dorms are a must for incoming freshman. Every college student should be familiar with the incident when it is 4 a.m. and you are debating the question of whether you should pull an all-nighter since its already so late, or catch a couple of hours of sleep before class? Most opted to miss class entire- iy- Learning the discipline of when to study and allowing yourself the time to, was the biggest down fall of the dorms. Every time you had planned to open the books, someone came by to offer you a more appealing alternative. It was great to not have the parents to answer to, but students had to learn responsibility on their own. "I found myself getting my priorities all messed up;' Morrison said. "The latest social event was more appealing than the books:' -Amanda Yates T^ A fire drill at Moody Towers had students scurrying about trying to get out of the buildings. The drill helped the students to be prepared in case a real fire should ever occur in the dorms. Photo by Pin Lim Freshman Andrea Riley, a pre-physical therapy major, had to live in the lounge of Moddy Towers with other students because the dorms had been overbooked.
