Life in a dormitory is always a useful, unforgettable, and sometimes tough experience. Having arrived at campus, not all students feel ready to start this new life where they have to manage all duties on their own without relying on parents. But alongside with responsibilities, students living on campus also have a freedom they dreamed about. The eternal motto of college students sounds “Life is a party”, and indeed, almost every night there is a party somewhere on campus. In desperate attempts to enjoy one’s college years, students frequently make life more stressful for their peers and themselves.
To cope with the noise of never-ending parties, some dormitories implement “quiet hours”. It is the time when any noise which can disturb students’ rest is forbidden in the dorms and in the grounds. Quiet hours usually take the time between 11 p.m and 8 a.m. on working days and between 12 p.m. and 10 a.m. on weekends. In fact, not so many dormitories enforce such rules, and students have not enough night rest because of the parties next door.
Quiet hours are essentials to the dormitory residents as these rules protect their night sleep. Not all students on campus can enjoy parties every day because they usually have a different workload. When someone is ready with their home assignments and eager to spend the rest of the night with peers, there is a certain number of students who are still working or just want to have a rest after a stressful day.
As a matter of fact, most students more or less often disrupt each others rest. Nevertheless, it is essential that they respect the needs of their peers. Deficiency of night sleep is most stressing not only to those whose rest was disturbed but for party people themselves.
