I am now in a new room in a different dorm than I expected, and have a different, new, roommate. But I am thrilled to be back with everyone!
Since I had considered living off campus for a while, and filled out the off-campus housing application, I was put on a different list for housing, and when the off-campus housing application was denied, I was still in limbo concerning where I was going to live. This morning (the day I checked/moved in), my Resident Director called me and said I would be in a different dorm. So here I am in Waldock Hall, which does seem to have bigger rooms than Hotchkiss had. It is an all-boys dorm. The personality of the dorm should fit me better (my opinion as well as the opinion of just about everyone else).
I'm rooming with Chan Sol Park, a freshman who just arrived 4 days ago from South Korea. He's currently chatting on Skype with his girlfriend who started at Bethel College in Indiana this week.
I still have to schedule the tests for Greek and Hebrew after I know what my work schedule in the library is going to be like. But I am very glad to be here!
