How to Survive the Cold Dorm

by Alex Godfrey

There’s nothing better than getting to have a slumbie with your favorite gals, especially when it’s every night of the week!

But how could we possibly survive the NoCo subzero temps in the cold dorm (which has no heat and the windows open 24/7)?

I asked a few sisters to give their advice and compiled this list of life hacks to help you get a good night sleep!


Meg O’Connor says “Make sure that you turn on your heated blankets well in advance so you don’t have to wait for them to warm up.”


“Be sure to have pillows that aren’t memory foam so that they won’t freeze, also wear a hat!” says sister Catherine “KTOC” O’Connell


Marissa Saunders urges to “Invest in a heated mattress pad and heated blanket- the combo is essential for prime toastiness, and don’t be scared!”


And if worse comes to worse, you can always just do as sister Sydney Hennegan suggests and “sleep on your futon!”
