The end of my freshman year at SUNY Oswego is approaching, and I'm starting to reflect back on the time I've spent here so far. I've had the time of my life, but that's definitely not to say that there aren't more than a few things I would change about this school. So, here's my list of things that I would change about SUNY Oswego because we've obviously all thought about it.
1. The Weather
We're situated right on Lake Ontario, which means that we have access to some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. However, it also means that crazy wind hits us every single day, no matter the weather. It could be sunny and windy, cold and windy, rainy and windy, snowy and windy, or whatever. You're not truly a SUNY Oswego student if you haven't almost been knocked over on the way to class.
2. The food
I live for taco dinners and late night at Lakeside and the pasta Cooper always has for lunch, but there are some days where I would rather eat anything but the dining hall food. After weeks on end of eating nothing but dining hall meals, it gets a little old.
3. Broken Elevators
I live in Funnelle Hall which is a building with nine floors and over four hundred people. Without fail, there is always at least one elevator that is down. Always. One time two of them were broken and we all had to leave like twenty minutes earlier for class because it took so long to get an elevator. I guess it's just all a part of the adventure.
4. The Wi-Fi
We're a big campus, so I can understand how it could be difficult to get the wi-fi to work on every part of the campus at all times. But when it cuts off when you're in the middle of taking a quiz or takes absolutely forever to load your homework, it's easy to pray for better Internet.
5. Hot Water
I'm sure it took a while, but we all figured out the perfect time to shower that provided the best access to hot water. For me, the only shower that provides nonstop hot water is the middle one, so I always have to wait until that one's free. I would definitely love more than one shower with hot water, though.
6. More Cafes on Campus
We all love getting coffee at Lake Effect or fries at Crossroads, but I wish there were more food options on campus, like a Moe's or a Panera. It would definitely provide an escape from dining hall food, and maybe give you a taste of the food from home.
