I thought I’d take this opportunity to share a bit about my dorm – my home for the next four months! Compared to Education City, where I live is nothing special – but in terms of dorm standards, this place is pretty good.
I live in a building called Shirley Apartments. It’s the furthest away from campus, clocking in at a 15 minute walk to campus, but on the flip side I’m closer to the Islamic Center (free iftar!) and the rest of the city. There’s a nice Indian grocery store within a three minute walk, as well as a QuiznosSub and Subway, and Starbucks.
My apartment is made for two upperclassmen – with a living room, dining table, desks, attached bathroom and separate bedroom. Nope, I don’t have AC, which leads to shirt-freezing to keep me cool.
