Flip flops were not the appropriate shoes to wear while climbing the three flights of stairs of Blanche Ward Hall on move-in day.
Like a model strutting down the runway in platforms, I too was one false step away from a fashion disaster.
A drop of sweat dripped down my forehead and rested on my pink pout. I soon realized it’s hard to make a fashionable impression on move-in day.
I arrived at my room and started to unpack the most important cargo; my clothes.
I only brought my summer and early fall clothes knowing that three seasons worth of clothes would strain the confines of the small closet.
As I put away my clothes I came across my favorite J. Crew shorts in British khaki that I certainly wouldn’t have left home without.
Why? Well, they’re classic, go with everything, and comfortable.
My mind reverted to a pair of gleaming Jack Rogers sandals that I saw winking at me from the depths of a plastic container carried by another Blanche resident.
Would she not have left home without those sandals? What would other residents not have left home without?
Karyn Curley, a senior, said, “My Phi Sig letters because not only are they comfortable, I love being part of a greek society which contributes greatly to the campus community.”
Junior, Lindsay Merkle said, “my jewelry, earrings, because you can have a stupid outfit like jeans and a t-shirt and make it cute with earrings.”
“My Roxy jeans,” said Allie Donnolley, a sophomore, “because I like them and they are real comfortable.”
From school spirit to comfort no matter what the reason most people find that there is something they need here on the Hill.
