14 Things All UIUC Students Who Live In Bromley Will Understand

Sweet home 910 S Third.

Lizzey Erlebacher

Freshman year has definitely been super exciting. I have made some of the most incredible memories of my life. It is safe to say that the dorm I live in, Bromley Hall, has shaped my freshman year. From elevators breaking, to people screaming all day and night, the barely edible food, and more, Bromley has been a wild ride. If you currently live in Bromley or have in the past, these are 14 things you will definitely understand and relate to.

The Elevator Situation


If you are on floors 6-8 and the 6-13 elevator breaks again, PLEASE don't use it.



I mean my suite's toilet has flooded fives times this year. Yes, Kendra, we know what to and what not to flush down the toilet.

Breakfast is the most underrated meal, yet the least popular 


Forget about Bromelette, they can make you any type of eggs at breakfast.

The police officers at lunch time

Lunch line

When it's 12:00 p.m. and you see the police officers heading in, you know to sprint to beat the crowd in the dining hall.

The pool that no one uses


"Lets throw a pool party!" - Everyone

**pool party is never thrown

Fobs are crucial to have on you at all times 


Let's be real, it sucks to be that guy who sits on the bench desperately waiting for someone to fob them in.

When the package room has your package and texts you at 7:31 p.m.


"Do you think if I tell the person at the front desk I need the package ASAP they will be nice and give it to me?"

The study room lights turning off when it's #grindszn

Lights flickering

Too bad Bromley doesn't care that I have a test tomorrow because I'm so busy waving my arms so the sensor turns back on.

The dining hall themed nights that have the worst food 

Dining hall

Bromley really goes HAM with the themed nights by adding costumes and decorations.

 People screaming at 4 a.m. about who knows what


Sleep is for the weak I guess.

 Chinese Night = the best dinner meal

Chinese food

When you never get to eat the fried rice because it's always out.

 The Bromley gym = a dungeon


Even though the Bromley gym is so crusty, I am definitely too lazy to walk to the ARC when I can workout in Bromley.

 Deyhdration Nation


When you are getting ready for bed and your mouth is dry, but your water bottle is empty and there is no water fountain on your floor.

 Floor Event = ~bonding~


Lets be real, we all go for the food that our RAs order for it.

My freshman year hands down would not be the same if it weren't for Bromley Hall. I have made some of the greatest friends by living here. More importantly, I have had some of the most interesting experiences in this dorm. Bromley, it's been real, it's been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...just kidding. SO MUCH LOVE FOR BROMLEY!

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
