Jonathon Pool '89

"Great Dorm, great people, great school."

The Solar Dorm was incredible. We were the farthest from the main buildings and the building was just cool. During the winter we augmented the heating of the building with the center fire chamber. Right in the middle common area lower level. 


We had the unfortunate happen. 

In the middle of the night we were awoken by the fire alarm with thick white smoke everywhere. We rushed outside into negative temperatures as the fire department came and dealt with the fire.

Turned out the center fire chamber was framed too close by wood and the chamber's temp became too hot and started the framing to catch fire. It was a 1/2 inch of charred 2x4 that gave us enough time to be safe. Otherwise, if it had made it past the frame, flames would have gone under the floor on that sides upper rooms and who knows how that would have turned out. 

Great Dorm, great people, great school.
