Words and Pictures : Jordan White (19') & Alice Goldberg (19')

For the prefrosh obsessively searching Google Earth to see what a Wesleyan dorm room looks like: here's an honest, last minute, uncensored look at some freshman rooms before moving out for the summer.

Bronx, NY

Type of Room: Single

Dorm: Butts C

Jejomar chose to reflect on his freshmen dorm room through a poem

Butts C

Room 357

Served as a safe haven where I

Can do homework,

Eat an entire pint of Ben and Jerry’s Salted Caramel Core ice cream without judgement,

Talk shit with my best friend,

Twerk at my lonesome to Rihanna’s ANTI at odd hours of the night,

Cry after a hard day’s work,

Snuggle in my large white comforter,

Read Langston Hughes and Maya Angelou poems,

FaceTimed baby Sophia and AMDG

Spend hours watching YouTube videos,

Hide from the hustle and bustle of Wesleyan,

Pampered myself with Lush facials and fuzzy socks,

Sleep naked,

Walk around naked,

Binge drink cups of steaming hot tea,

Pulled all nighters,

Stalked my high school crush on Instagram,

Clean when I’m stressed out,

And sit and think at my solitude.

Room 357

Is the first place I considered home here at Wesleyan and

Is the first space I have made my very own.
