On June 29, 2015, the temperature in the city of Wuhan in China peaked to 35 degrees. So, to provide comfort in the midst of the very warm night, the stadium of Central China Normal University was opened specially for the students.
This tradition already started way back in 2013. Every 10 o’clock in the evening the air-conditioned stadium becomes a cozy haven for more than 1,000 students. Normally, the students bring their own plastic pads and comforters to sleep on and use tables to serve as a division between women and men.
The Eastern portion of the bedrooms in the dormitory of the school got new air conditioning units starting last July 20. But prior to that date, everybody spent their nights in the huge stadium.
