Love/ Hate Relationship with the Tunnels
In the Winter months you run to the tunnels to escape the wicked wind and piercing cold temperatures outside, but when you get down there you complain it’s too hot.
You have a drawer full of free UAlbany t-shirts that you only wear to bed or the gym. Purple Fam!
Shuttle Bus Confusion
Nobody ever knows where the shuttle bus is going. “Are you going to Freedom?” No! The sign clearly says Alumni/ Western Avenue Shuttle.
It’s survival of the fittest when it comes to getting the housing you want. Your lottery number can be the difference between Empire and Freedom or a suite with a bathroom on Dutch or a communal bathroom on Colonial.
No one ever knows which way to open the door. No matter how long you’ve been attending UA you’ll never remember which way to push the door. It’s best to press the handicap button or walk behind someone and let them open the door so you don’t look dumb.
Annoying Lecture Center (LC) Chairs
They’re noisy, they don’t give you enough room to sit down, some of them are broken. What is it? The LC chairs. Too many times have I seen someone fall out of their chair or when the professor is lecturing and you can’t hear because the chairs keep creaking. Enough is enough. We want new chairs!
Well that took forever, but we love it. We just want fountain day back! The fountain in the middle of the podium is beautiful. When winter is over and they turn the fountain on, what a wonderful day that will be.
Too many times have my friends and I gotten sick because of the food. And does anyone remember “mothgate”? I don’t think that student ordered a side of moth on her salad. Hamburgers aren’t fully cooked, the sandwiches are never right, and there’s never a variety. The struggle is real.
The Dreaded Fire Alarms
Fire alarms are great….when you’re not home and sleeping at 3 in the morning. How many times are you going to burn popcorn and why are you popping corn at 3AM on a Wednesday. I know you have class at 8:45 so please stop.
UAlbany Song by Neil Roche
“ I go to SUNY U of A and I ******* love it.” This catchy song just sums up UAlbany Student Life. At least once in your undergraduate life you’ve had to hear this song, danced to it or found yourself humming the tune while doing your homework.
