Good morning. Thanks for your submission.
This is a tricky time of the year, where the outside temperatures move between cold and hot, and sometimes back to cold again.
The campus switches from steam heating to cooling once in the spring, and back again in the fall. This switchover started to take place on campus a week or so ago when the temperatures appeared to be more like summer than spring. Some of the libraries have been switched over already, but not all. It takes quite a bit of time to make this switch,
Once the switch has happened, it cannot be reversed. Likewise it may remain warm in some buildings until the switch has happened.
The campus is looking at upgrading their equipment to give them better control over the systems in general, but I think the heat or cooling issue will remain.
Good luck on the rest of your exams.
