Ask any upperclassmen about what annoys them most at school, and I bet many will respond with “crowded hallways.”
At some smaller schools it’s not as big of an issue, but at schools like Hidden Valley, with over 1000 students, it’s a huge pain.
And what aggravates the situation is freshmen standing in huge gobs in the middle of a hallway. I am sure every other upperclassman feels my pain
I’ve seen these mega groups of freshmen form so big they completely block the entrance to a hallway. You literally have to plow through any two people in the bunch in order to have a hope of getting through.
It’s amazing the rate at which these groups grow. First, one or two students stop to talk in the middle of your path, which is annoying enough. Then three, then four, then fifteen!
Sometimes I feel like I need to be riding a bulldozer down the main hallways as I try to get to class.
Oh well, I’m a senior so I won’t have to deal with this annoying habit much longer; unless students have a tendency to clump together and block entire pathways on my college campus! I doubt that will happen, but people surprise me all the time.
