It’s hard for women who are used to have plenty of time for grooming suddenly to find themselves with none. But it’s only for a short while and, while it sounds hard to believe, it is true that no one cares. In my day, there was no A/C in Bancroft, so add being smelly all of the time to the list (despite deodorant). But you’re either to busy or too exhausted to think about it.
Sunday mornings are heavenly, with time for long showers and maybe even doing something with your hair!
There are no “group showers,”. Every room has a shower that, while you’re in it, is as private as one in your home. When you step out, you are in your main room with your roommates. You learn to shower fast. Shaving is tough other than on Sunday though you probably have as much time for your body as guys have for their face. Assuming you don’t have to use that time to put up your hair.
Women have managed for 45 years and so will you. 😀
