I struggled to decide on a final school after I was accepted to 10 of the 12 schools to which I applied.
There were school chances in every region and weather conditions in this vast country.
Originally I was going to stay close to home. All of that changed after our parents announced that they would be selling their condo and moving to a condominium in Florida. I didn’t apply to any schools in Florida, so that meant I no longer had to consider our family’s proximity when choosing our final school. On a single hand, this was a freeing feeling because I could focus solely on which location was best for myself and others and our future. On the other hand, I was scared to pave our own path forward alone without any help or assistance from our family. Although they were surprised by our final choice of schools, I was ecstatic moving to Spokane, Washington to attend undergraduate school at Whitworth University. I decided to attend company school at Whitworth and had some of the best mentors that I could ask for. However, there was a single thing that I hated about Whitworth despite sentimental the city of Spokane so much. The dormitories at Whitworth had some of the worst heating and cooling systems while in our time as a student there around 15 years ago. I l gained that all of us were all hooked up to steam boilers that were in the basement, but they were much older than what’s recommended for long term use. Of course all of us couldn’t control the temperature in our rooms so it was constantly uncomfortable, no matter what season all of us were in at any given moment. I enjoyed our time at Whitworth, although I wish the Heating and Air Conditioning systems in the dormitories had been better while I was a student at that school.
