The Dorms at West Chester

Posted 06-13-2011 at 12:01 PM by Catherine Chandler
I notice Anna mentioned on her blog that she was glad she chose to stay at the Day`s Inn instead of the dorms, and I, too, had been forewarned.

HOWEVER, now conference participants stay in UNIVERSITY HALL, one of the beautiful new dorms with air-conditioned suites.

My room was on the 7th floor, and each person had her own room and bathroom. The room was very clean and well-lit. We also had a common sitting room for both of us. The dorms are secure, and we all had our own keys and access cards to the building.

The best part of being on campus is that one doesn`t have to lug things around all day (for example, the many book purchases at the campus bookstore!) and can easily go back to one`s suite for a change of clothes, or simply to take a rest now and then, before dinner, for example, or before the evening events (such as faculty readings).

Also, one doesn`t have to walk all the way back to the hotel (along a busy road, no sidewalks) at night. Some people have cars and everyone`s friendly about giving people lifts, but it`s a hassle I can do without.

I was speaking with Rhina, who was in my dorm, and she chose to stay at the dorms after staying at the Day`s Inn previously. I guess it`s a matter of choice.

As for the pool, Anna said she was happy to have brought along her bathing suit, but I heard a certain poet took a swim in his jeans and was none the worse for it .

No, it wasn`t Richard Wilbur!

    So how much did Dave have to drink? He's about half seal, and a dip wouldn't hurt him.

    I've many times decided I'm too old for the hard beds, skimpy linens, and impossible-to-regulate temps in the dorm — but in the end, I always decide that the convenience of being on campus is worth the minor inconveniences. I bring a lot of paraphenalia!

    Ooh, sorry to have missed the pool plunge.
