Living in the River
Then I finally got the email of where I would be rooming: French Hall, 3 room double.
After that I did 2 things:
- Looked up what a 3 room double could possibly mean
- Where French Hall was on campus (Google Maps never disappoints)
Both good and semi-disappointing news followed.
I learned that a 3 room double basically consists of, well, 3 rooms for you and your roomate. A common space with a fridge, microwave, and two desks as well as two single bedrooms on either side of the larger space. To me, that sounded absolutely perfect. I may or may not have gone on a bit of a bragging spree and made all my friends jealous. Being able to have a roommate? And my own space? Nothing sounded better. Now that I'm finally here, I can say that I truly am in love with my rooming situation. As someone who never had their own room growing up, the idea of personal space was foreign to me. Now with my own little bedroom, I can retreat after a long day of socializing and work (given that freshman year involves a LOT of socializing), but also talk and consult with my roommate whenever we're both up to it.
Though we're far from the bigger things on campus, the river is a home I wouldn't trade for any other dorm (though maybe I'll change my mind in the winter). We have the perfect room arrangements, gorgeous views, and a community worth 9,000 steps a day.
