Why I love living in … Harshman Dunbar

This is my first year at BGSU, and I chose to live in Harshman Dunbar. I come from a family of six, so my parents wanted me to live in a residence hall that wasn’t too expensive.

I was a little bummed that I wasn’t going to be living in the new Centennial Hall, but within my first week of school, I was certainly glad that I chose Harshman!

When people would ask me which res hall I was staying in, I would tell them. Almost immediately they would say things like “it doesn’t have air-conditioning.” But to be perfectly honest, Harshman is not a bad place to live at all! Yes, it may be older and the rooms are small, but I love it all the same. I am used to the living space and as for air-conditioning, having a fan and keeping the window open was perfect. It was never too hot in my room during August and September.

I am very happy living in Harshman because I have made so many great friends there. I am on a floor with members of the Honors Program and the Honors Learning Community, and they are some of the nicest friends I have ever had. I never have to worry about people blasting their music or just being loud during the early hours of the morning. You don’t have to be in the Honors Program to live here either. I am not in the Honors Program.

I am close to most of my floor mates and have had some amazing times with them. We even made a trip to Cedar Point back in September, and that is something that I will never forget.
