We all love SHU, but there are certain aspects of this school that either lead us to love it more or less. Even the things I hate are still things I love (in a way). Depending on the weather, class, and menu, we all have experienced a love/hate relationship with our campus.
1. The spring concert
SHU always outdoes itself by bringing in a bigger and better act each year. Fetty Wap was all anyone talked about for months, so we are all looking forward to finding out who is up next.
A sea of red fills campus for one day each year. Pioneer pride is nice to see every once in awhile.
3. The new buildings
It’s obviously no competition… the Martire is a better place to have classes than the main academic building and the new dorms are the envy of every upperclassman.
4. The Chartwell’s employees
Sandy, Maria… basically, everyone who works in Linda’s and 63’s makes you feel right at home.
5. Everyone has manners
The students hold open the doors, they thank the shuttle drivers, they help one another out if they see someone in need.
And now for some things we all hate…
1. The dreaded winter months
Trekking through a foot of snow to class might actually be the worst thing in the world.
2. The doors leading into Linda’s
Why do they have to be so damn heavy? I feel like I work out every time I open the door.
Registration is by far the most stressful time of the semester. No more room in your class? Time to wait at registrar for four hours.
4. The one-hour per day when there’s no food in 63’s
Yeah, 3pm is the worst time to go eat. Lunch is over but dinner still hasn’t started, so you wait, settle, or starve.
5. The hill up to Roncalli
Not leg day? Oh well…your thighs will be burning before you reach the top.
