But of course, most USC students didn’t need a thermometer to tell them it was insufferably hot, evident in the pained expressions of students walking through the involuntary on-campus sauna.
Students found a variety of ways to deal with the oppressive heat, from taking refuge in the makeshift wading pool in front of Leavey Library to sleeping in the bottom floor of their dorms to avoid the rising heat in the dead of night.
Although some were able to retreat in their air-conditioned igloos, many were not as fortunate.
