Describe a day on campus you’ll never forget.
The day on campus I will never forget ....
It was late on a Friday night and we (the golf team) had the Williams Invitational Tournament the next morning at 11:00am sharp. I knew the night had to be cut short so I didn't do much this night and instead found myself trying to get a full night's sleep before the first round of the tournament. I slept from about 1am - 1:30am until the Williams Hall (the dorm in which I live) fire alarm went off.
This presented a problem. My entry gathered outside of our dorm as standard procedure requires, and we waited for the security officers to give us the okay to go back in. But that affirmation never came.
What happened was not only a fire alarm fault, but actually a bursting of the pipes in Williams Hall. This pipe problem rendered 125 freshmen without a place to sleep at night. And all I could think about was my lack of sleep before the tournament.
Fast forward about 3 hours and I find myself roaming the campus at 4am for some place to sleep and FINALLY the dorms opened back up at like 5am. So, I slept from 5am-10am and then made my way over to the tournament to shoot a sleep-deprived round in the 80's.
The most pleasant experience at Williams? That's a "no". But the fact that we - a sleep-deprived Williams Hall - all laughed about it the next day made it a memorable experience. Could I have written about an awesome day of classes where I felt the world had changed around me? Yes, but that's not as personal as this story.
Plus...who doesn't love to read about fire alarms and bursted pipes?
