    Jin's Bio:
    Hi, there! I'm Jin, and I am a passionate, talkative, dessert fanatic. Poems, good books, coconut water, and action movies make me happy. If we ever meet in person, you'll definitely hear me before you see me. You'll want to ask how many energy drinks I've had, but the answer will always be zero.

Tunnels a.k.a. Life Savers in the Winter

The tunnel between Science and Tower

When I first heard about the existence of tunnels that connect the Somers building, Science building, and Tower, I imagined the tunnels to be dug up from the dirt underground with torches lighting up the walkways, dust particles gently falling from the ceilings and walls each time someone breathed too hard.

Turns out, the tunnels are pretty nice. They’re basically polished hallways no different than the hallways that are not underground in each of the main buildings on campus. The janitorial crew does an excellent job keeping the floors of the tunnels sparkling clean.

There are two tunnels on the CSS campus: one that connects the ground floor of Tower to the second floor of the Science building, and one that connects the first floor of the Science building with the ground floor of Somers Hall/Suites.

In the winter, these tunnels are life savers. You can go from any of the three main buildings on campus to any other building without even stepping a foot outside. That means no snow, no cold, and no wind to deal with between classes. Unfortunately, there are no tunnels from the main parts of campus to the on-campus apartments. But for now, I’m just grateful for the tunnels we do have.
