Houses And Homes: Carman Dingle

Bwog has been all over the world but also close to home this past summer. To continue our Houses and Homes series, Managing Editor Courtney Couillard shares with us her experience living in a Carman Hall dingle as an RA for the Columbia High School Program. If you went somewhere special (or normal) and want to share your experience, email us at with a picture and description of these five senses. Cheers to the end of summer!

Where: Carman 1313A. What is usually a spacious double became my even more spacious dingle for the summer.

Sound: High school students disrespectfully trying to sing along to “The Hills” and my Turkish resident laughing (which I always thought sounded like her crying.)

Smell: Lots of B.O. because high schoolers don’t know how to shower on the regular. On the other hand, far too much Axe body spray and perfume in the elevator.

Taste: Nussbaum bagels every Sunday morning, Skinny Pop, insomnia cookies (ordered by my residents every night,) and crappy iced coffee from Ferris.
