and when things are not so good...

 sick

One of the "joys" of community living is that you get sick at the same time as your hallmates. During the Great Flu Epidemic of 2008, Sunderland residents dined together in the residence hall common room so they didn't spread their germs around the salad bar in Gladfelter. We won't lie--it wasn't fun to be sick. But, it made it a lot easier to share meals in our PJs with other Sunderlandites.
