Plex life is the best life

February 18, 2014  |  The Experience, Calli Reynolds '17

Think about a few of your favorite things to do when it is cold outside. Did staying inside make the list? There will always be reasons why we must trek out into the cold: class, meetings, activities, etc. For the ever so lucky ‘Plex-dwellers,’ meals don't have to be one.

The Plex (officially the “North Complex,” but no one calls it that... ever) consists of six dorms, connected by a dining hall (Harris Refectory) in the center. There are other dining halls around campus, but Harris is the largest. During the winter, it becomes my favorite place on campus. Having a dining hall connected to your dorm means breakfast in pajamas and slippers. It is always easy to tell who lives in the plex when you go to Harris. If it's winter, usually someone in shorts is a nice hint. The other students come in from the cold with boots and gloves.

The occasional snow day can be exciting because you can easily hangout with friends without braving the cold and the mounds of snow. Movie days and the occasional snowball fight become a norm in the dead of winter.

Every part of campus has a special perk or fun aspect, but I must say, the Plex life is the best life.
