So while on my NEH Religious Worlds of New York summer program I opted to stay in the dorms at the Union Theological Seminary choosing the cheapest option … which meant I was sharing a bathroom. Butttttt I didn’t realize it was a hall bathroom (totally different from what I was expecting when I heard the word “shared”). I, however, survived the trip and had a great time in the dorm! (mostly because I found a private bathroom available near my room yay!)
So here’s a sneak peek of my dorm life for three weeks! The photos below are the room I was assigned, which was still decorated with its owner’s stuff, and made it feel extra homey while I was there!
And then there were the common spaces: our floor had two communal kitchens where I cooked a couple of nights, the hall bath, & a common living room. I enjoyed meeting with the other program participants and Union students watching crappy TV, cooking, and talking.
