Kate Segrest, a freshman cheerleader from Downers Grove, Illinois, sits in the windowsill of her room in Barnes Campbell Hall. Segrest left Barnes on Oct. 8. Segrest said her time in Barnes was “mentally challenging.” “It’s really hard to go from human interaction every day to being alone,” Segrest said. “But it did give me a lot of time to reflect and just watch people out the window.”
