    “On the spot: Barret Smith, Undeclared freshman”

    What are you doing?

    I’m calculating how much energy it takes for the heating block to heat while it’s out in the sun, I guess.


    Is this interesting to you?

    Not at all.

    How’s dorm life going?

    It’s fun. A lot of my friends are getting kicked out.

    For what?

    For noise complaints. And drinking. It sucks.

    Where do they go if they get kicked out? They’re homeless freshmen.

    They’re not getting evicted, they’re getting transferred to other dorms.

    Like juvenile delinquent dorms?

    Like Babcock. I’ve never heard of Babcock.

    Leaving (Kaibab) Huachuca is punishment? Moving to Babcock is punishment?

    Yeah, it’s so horrible. (Laughs.)

    Do you wear flip-flops in the shower?

    Yes, and when I go to the bathroom. I’ve seen people piss on the floor.

    Do you like your RA?

    Yes, I hate every other RA.

    Why is yours better than the other ones?

    Because they get all my friends in — oh, I shouldn’t be saying this. 

    I won’t get you in trouble.

    They hate on all of our friends. They just pick on us.
