The dorms in Whitworth University used to have the worst heating and cooling systems

I struggled to decide on a final college after I was accepted to 10 of the 12 schools to which I applied. There were school options in every region and climate in this vast country. Originally I was going to stay close to home. All of that changed after my parents announced that they would be selling their house 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 my family’s proximity when choosing my final school. On one hand, this was a freeing feeling because I could focus solely on which location was best for me and my future. On the other hand, I was scared to pave my own path forward alone without any help or assistance from my family. Although they were surprised by my final choice of schools, I was happy moving to Spokane, Washington to attend undergraduate school at Whitworth University. I decided to attend business school at Whitworth and had some of the best professors that I could ask for. However, there was one thing that I hated about Whitworth despite loving the city of Spokane so much. The dormitories at Whitworth had some of the worst heating and cooling systems during my time as a student there around 15 years ago. I learned that we 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 we couldn’t control the temperature in our rooms so it was always uncomfortable, no matter what season we were in at any given moment. I enjoyed my time at Whitworth, but I wish the HVAC systems in the dormitories had been better while I was a student at that school.
