If there is one thing that most college students will agree with, it is that college elevators.. or really any elevator anywhere..can be a scary place to be! During your experience at college, you will probably run into many of these little death traps. This is especially true if you live in a dorm or have classes in a large building, and you do not feel like taking the steps.
Do not panic! We are all in this little tiny metal boat together. Some of us are newbies, while others are experienced sailors ( and others pirates!). What I am trying to get at is that there is ..probably..nothing to fear! Your college elevator may not be as scary as it may seem..or sound.
Often times your college elevator may have a few lights out, make strange rattling sounds as it moves, and even behave in a stage matter – but more than likely, it is working perfectly fine. All you can do is hold on for dear life! (If your super heavy backpack does not anchor you down in the first place) and take a few deep breaths if need be.
It’s good to note though, that if something does go wrong, all elevators have an emergency button you can use to call or signal someone for help.
Safe Journeys !
