When I first started college here at UAT, I brought some clothes and my work computer. As you could imagine, my dorm room felt bland and empty. So, during my second semester though, I bought (and bartered for) tons of posters, trinkets and furniture. It finally felt like home. Pick up these five items to make your dorm room feel more like your own personal space and less like a rotating room at summer camp.
The University of Advancing Technology (UAT) is a pretty small campus with only two buildings: the main campus building and the dormitory. I discovered a whole new world of UAT when I moved into Founder's Hall, a melting pot of geek culture, where studious hackers, (really) excited robotics students, digital artists and designers gather to talk about the future of technology, crush energy drinks, tackle homework, shoot some pool, game all night, hash out problems and form lasting friendships.
The University of Advancing Technology is different. You can tell as soon as you walk in the door just how different it is and how strong the culture is. But what makes it so different from other universities? For me, it's our people—the friendly community of geeks who help each other out, make each other laugh and push each other to innovate and create.
