Welcome to the bimonthly Q & A Edgewood College Student Experience Blogs: Twice a month we post a question, and current Edgewood College students answer the question based on their own experience as an EC student. Feel free to add your own two cents by posting response comments. Enjoy. (don’t forget to check out the EC MySpace page and YouTube site)
A: The oddest thing I have found on campus was the staircases. Some buildings are built into hills, so even though the building has three stories, the “ground level” changes depending on what side of the building you are on. If walking into Wingra from the patio you are on the 2nd floor, but you didn’t have to walk up any stairs. If you walk into Predolin lobby from the parking lot you are on the 1st floor, but if you continue along the Predolin hallway and leave through the doors facing Weber you have to walk UP stairs to get out. That took a lot of getting used to—where I could get out and what level I was on when I walked in.
A: One time, a fire truck was parked on campus and the firemen were pushing buttons on their truck and didn’t realize and they accidentally dispensed fluid that dribbled into our fountain in the front of campus. The fluid mixed with the water to create TONS of bubbles. Being a particularly windy weekend, the huge clumps of bubbles were blown all around campus. It was quite a silly sight.
A: The only thing I can think of is this one time my roommate (who was my neighbor freshman year) found a large centipede crawling around on her floor one day in the spring. We had to get one of the guys in the res hall to catch it and let it outside.
A: One of the oddest things I encountered on campus was seeing the baby turtles crawling around in front of Regina after they hatched. I’m not on campus very much so it was amazing to see that the turtles were so far away from the lake.
