The Ture College Experience

College is the stepping stone from High School to the real world. College is intended not
only to teach us knowledge, but also to prepare us for the next part of life. Not all
college students get this preparation though. Those students are the ones that live at
home and commute to school every day. These students miss out on the entire college
culture. Being a commuter myself, I almost feel left out. If it were not being in the
rigorous architecture program which demands hours and hours of studio work, I probably
would not have meet ten percent of the people that I have met. Walking into my design
studio for class, I hear people talking about what happened the night before in Goodyear,
the freshman dormitory on South Campus. I am always intrigued to know what goes on daily
at the dorms. Being as intrigued as I was, I decided to spend one night with my friend to
try to get a feel of dorm culture

One of the main goals of an architecture program is to teach the future architects to
observe well. Now being in this program for only a semester has changed the way I view
things. One thing that I noticed, from an architectural standpoint, is that the dorms are
probably the poorest designed spaces on any college campus. Even I.M. Pei, one of the best
architects in the world, could not design a dormitory that was spacious and efficient.
That dorm is none other than the easily navigated Governors Complex. The spacious double
rooms are much smaller than my own room. I do not understand how people can survive for
long periods of time crammed into a small room with another person without going
clinically insane. Fortunately I did not stay in Governors, for if I did I would have
spent most of the night trying to find my friend's dorm room. Instead, I decided to spend
the night at Goodyear Dorm with my friend from architecture. Aside from Governors, the
Goodyear dorm was fairly easy to find my way around. I was impressed at seeing the double
rooms in Goodyear compared to Governors. The rooms were much bigger but still not large
enough.

Sleeping is another story. The word dormitory was given to this building because it is
where people are supposed to sleep. The irony in this situation is that good sleep is not
possible in the dorms. There is no way to get to bed at a decent time on any college
campus. There are always things to do. People chat on-line until the wee hours of the
morning. You can always download anything that you want form the residential network. This
is probably the only thing to which I can give credit, the high-speed connection in all of
the dorm rooms. The connection is reason enough to live on-campus. You will definitely
download your moneys worth of mp3s, movies, software, and almost any thing that you want.

Their, the dorm dwellers, agenda involves a lot of over-priced Coca-Cola products, staring
at the computer screen and gazing into the TV if you are lucky enough that you roommate
can afford one. Hearing the annoying little noises from the AOL Instant Messenger for
hours upon hours of the day is liable to make anyone go crazy. It's like this strange
pseudo-vampire lifestyle. You barely eat any good food on the campus so you turn pale from
the lack of nutrition. We already know that nobody sleeps in the dorms so the creepy
looking eyes and strange vibe will come in effect. Dormitories are an insomniac's dream.

Eating habits are affected heavily by the dorms. Every night at 2 in the morning you get
as hungry as a Bosnian and you have to go to the vending machine and spend more money that
you do not have for an over-priced snack that will not do you any good. The college will
never actually put something healthy in the vending machines on campus. This might
actually cause better grades in some students. Other students probably will never be
affected by healthy foods because they are to busy drinking themselves into a stupor to
realize that Sal's Pizzeria near South Campus is probably the worst pizza known to
mankind.

Leaving the dorm is an activity in itself. If you can walk down the hall without looking
in anyone's room or making any sound louder than a mouse then you should be all right. As
you walk past rooms with open doors, your first instinct is to look in the room. What you
will probably see is someone playing Grand Theft Auto Three on the Playsation 2 Game
Console. Now everyone else is bound to have an expensive game system that you cannot
possibly afford. Now once you get out of the halls, and close to the door, you will check
to see if you have everything that you need. You'll need keys, ID, bag, books, a map, an
umbrella, sunglasses, insulin, a snake bite kit, mace, and your best friend that you made
just because he is the only guy on your floor with a car. In Buffalo, if you want to do
anything amusing, you must own a car. Even if you are trying to go to class, the split
campus helps you out a whole lot, especially when the busses are on time which come to
find out is not too often. Walking on campus is aggravating in itself. It is not the other
