The university is asleep right now, dormant. It is dark outside, al least one hour after sunset. All you can hear is the hum of radiators, pop vending machines and flickering fluorescent light bulbs. The classrooms are empty. Two hundred person lecture theatres are dead silent. It is weird that the campus lives and breathes during the day and that’s it. No more. It slumbers dreaming of sweet rest, perfect lectures delivered by the best profs, regular cleaning.
This is a place where students live, breathe, study, and hang out for four or five or even six years of their life and then leave. We are but visitors here, a short fling, never something long term. Some students aren’t even monogamous transferring and going on exchanges. They break hearts.
