How long have you been there? about a month right? It should start to mellow out in a few weeks I'd say, but as was pointed out this is what most dorms are like, so you'll probably just have to get used to it, or join in being one of the crazy drunks. But I do sympathise, our dorm was trashed by drunkards the yesterday, it is fucking annoying at times.
Thanks, but... no. This situation is intolerable, because there is literally nowhere and no way for me to get away from the all-night parties. There are less than 300 students at this school, and I have yet to find a peer group that doesn't get stupidly drunk whenever they possibly can. The opportunity to mooch off of the available substances does not make up for miserable nights. If it was only Friday and/or Saturday nights, that would be one thing. But enough of the hard partyers (a) have Fridays off and start their weekend on Thursday night, (b) have classes late enough in the afternoon that they can sleep off their hangovers, or (c) just don't give a shit, that I can't get to sleep several nights a week.
Also, the dormitory suite is absolutely squalid. People leave trash and food all over the place, even after being told by Teh Authorities to clean the fuck up.
Does this school require you to live in the dorms. I know some of them do if you are under a certain age and/or number of hours.
My apartment is cheaper than the cheapest dorms at my school.
$275/mo for 300 square feet all to myself.
That's what I'm looking for, but it being the Hamptons area... $800 was the cheapest I've found for a studio apartment.
Anyway, I know I've been cryassing a lot about my situation, on the boards and in IRC, and I'll try to reign it in, but this college well and truly sucks. It has attracted a degenerate crowd that I cannot get away from, and that never wants to do anything except drink and smoke. I don't enjoy their company all that much even when I join in, so I can't win. There's no fun to be had, and believe me, I've been trying very hard.
I should be able to report good news fairly soon, since my family and I have already resolved to do something about it.
