With the fall semester coming to a close, freshmen experienced their first full semester living on campus. They have just gotten accustomed to being on their own, with no parental figures to guide them, as well as having to share a room with someone they start off being unfamiliar with. Some of those living on campus cannot wait to go home, while others want to stay.
“I really enjoy living on campus,” said Pedro Resende, freshman. “The campus is not that big so getting to my classes is never a problem. It is great that the [dining commons] is open 24 hours a day. I enjoy the freedom and responsibility of being somewhat on my own. I do not really want to go home just yet.”
Some students feel indifferent about their stay at Lynn, but utilize the resources the school has to offer. With the library available at nearly all times, along with a 24-hour cafeteria, students are kept full while completing their studies.
“Even the fact that the library is open late on some nights really helps me get my work done. de Hoernle should be closer to the rest of the school,” said Dan Columbo, a freshman.
While the weather changes from hot to cold in a single day, other students are finding that to be a problem.
Some of the students at Lynn do not always expect the typical sunny South Florida weather to change. When asked about how it is to be living on campus with other people, one student said,
“I ride my longboard to class every day. I really like the Florida weather, although now it is starting to get chilly. But the campus is nice,” said Arie Eskinazi, freshman.
