This semester is the first time I’ve brought a car on campus and it is glorious. Knowing that I am able to leave whenever I want is an almost better feeling than actually going. This weekend I’m making a trip back home since my uncle from Puerto Rico will be there and my sister just gave birth to her first child, making me an aunt for the first time.
Last weekend a couple of friends and I went to Lowell, Massachusetts to eat Dim Sum with a rook brother who is now enlisted and studying at another university. Without having cars on campus, you are limited to Norwich and Northfield. They have their perks, but realistically it is nice to be able to explore places further out and meet with people out of state.
A large con of having a car on campus is dealing with the snow, especially the constant battle to avoid the infamous tow truck. Many others on campus have had their cars towed due to not moving them from the lot to be plowed in time.
