Question #53724 posted on 10/01/2009 3:01 a.m.

Is it just me, or is the testing center much colder this fall than last fall/winter? Did they upgrade the AC in there, or did they just decide they might boost test scores if they kept it a temperature that doesn't immediately induce sleep. In any case, if you can figure out who is responsible for this delightful ∆T, would you tell them thank-you from me -- and tell them to make sure they keep it this way.

A: Dear Hot under the collar,

If by colder, you mean colder-hearted, then yes, the testing center is colder this semester.

Still mad about the test that kicked me in the face today,

A: Dear collared,

I sent an email to the testing center and they very promptly responded:
The temperature isn’t any different this year. The Heating and Air Conditioning people from the Physical Plant control the temperature. I don’t know where the temperature is set, but it should be pretty standard for all of campus.
