Why would an institution keep the air conditioning on in the common areas of a dorm when the temperature outside (according to my Weather Channel desktop) is 35 degrees? I just walked down the hall and almost got frostbite on all of my toes. I felt like I should be shoveling through a mountain of snow instead of walking to my room. It seems like an awful waste of energy if you ask me. This is coming from the university that runs the sprinklers during the rain though, so I suppose I shouldn't be that surprised.
