As a part of the campus where I work, it’s often tough to find out important information regarding my employment.
This seems to be an issue across campus, and there’s no enjoyable resolution to the problem, since HR is too big to help everyone and the information they’re allowed to pass out is pretty hit or miss. As such, I joined the council for academic professionals, in order to hear news faster than everyone else. The only disadvantage is having to rest through a 3 hour meeting every month in which the air conditions are imminently horrible. I guess it’s because my enjoyable friend and I meet in an old building, however the Heating plus Air Conditioning system is totally screwed up. It’s either warm hot, or freezing cold, and not related to the outdoor air conditions at all. The air temperature seems totally dysregulated, and the air vents are frightening to my personal comfort, no matter where I sit. In the winter season I feel like it wildly varies between the heater toiling at full steam, or no heating taking locale at all. It’s drafty, and I switch between being freezing cold and swelteringly hot. In the summer, the a/c is harshly overwhelming at some points, and then seems to turn off unquestionably other times. I cannot figure out if they are constantly toying with the thermostat, or if the Heating plus Air Conditioning system is honestly so old that it can’t maintain a consistent air temperature, however regardless, it makes for an incredibly long 3 hour meeting when the air quality is wildly fluctuating.
