When I was a freshman in college, I lived in the absolute worst dorm on campus. In fact, they knocked it down the year after we moved out to build a new recreation center. It had cockroaches. It has brown water. We had one microwave that no one used because it was disgusting and always dirty. our showers clogged constantly. It was just nothing short of disgusting, but it was home. I will always have a little piece of love for it.
There were a lot of things that I wasn’t able to do in my dorm because we lacked amenities and useful gadgets that many other dorms had. We were left with pretty much nothing to work with. If I had known that I could use some aluminum foil and an iron to make a grilled cheese or that all I needed was a coffee filter and a cup to make coffee without a maker, I’m sure that my time in Barton Hall would have been a much easier experience. After seeing this amazing video, I really wish that Buzzfeed had existed when I was a freshman in college way back when (6 years ago…I AM OLD.)
