Now I'm someone who loves progress, so seeing these changes bring a smile to my face. They're building new dorms with... get this... air conditioning. And tearing down old stinky awful dining halls and putting up nice ones. For a little university so deep in the mountains that I haven't been back since the day I graduated, (it is not on the way to anywhere) I'd say they're doing pretty well.
But the funny thing is, I don't miss college that much and I don't miss what most people do. What I really miss is walking to class, sitting in those old seats, taking out a pen and starting a fresh page of notes. Having the occasional professor that would let you get away with murder and still get an 'A,' and sitting in the UC (common area) sipping Java City coffee & doing homework in between classes.
Oh, and freshman year my dorm was across the street from the gym. I did 2 workouts a day!
So, I'm weird. And I didn't make many best friends in college. I was a little preoccupied with getting married & paying bills.
Did you go to college? Do you miss it? What was your favorite part?
