Greendale Air Conditioning Repair School

The A/C school is the most successful part of Greendale. The job placement rate for its students is five times higher than the main schools, and its alumni’s donations comprise 80% of Greendale’s overall budget. As a result, no expense is spared for both students and faculty; they even have an espresso machine. Besides the vice dean’s impressive office, the school also has special areas such as The Room Temperature Room and a hall for storing relics from A/C history. Inside that room, The Sun Chamber and the “The Air Conditioning Repair Manual ” are featured prominently. At the school, both the students and teachers wear overalls. The faculty wear grey ones while students wear olive drab ones.

Recruitment Edit

Students are handpicked from the most promising candidates at the main school. Anyone showing an aptitude for fixing things is kidnapped and brought before Laybourne and the faculty at the A/C school. Once there, they take part in an initiation to gauge whether or not they have the true skills to join the school. In order to ensure the recruits do not tell anyone about what they have witnessed, they include ridiculous things like the appearance of a Black Hitler to discredit any account they might give to others later. If they pass, they are given the choice to enroll at the school. It is made clear to them, however, that once they are in, they are in for life.

A test to see who has the skills to join the A/C elite

The prophecy Edit

It was foretold in the “Air Conditioning Repair Manual “, the guiding scriptures of the A/C school, that a messianic figure would arrive; this being would be capable of not only fixing air conditioners but also the men who fix air conditioners. Robert Laybourne at one time believed himself to be the chosen one but later realized it was Troy Barnes. Unfortunately, Laybourne died not long after finally getting Troy enrolled at the school and informing him of his destiny. Although his death was ruled an accident, Troy had a hunch Murray was responsible and challenged him to a public duel inside The Sun Chamber in order to learn the truth. During the competition, Murray inadvertently confesses to Laybourne’s murder. Embracing the title of “The Truest Repairman “, Troy instructs them to take Murray to the proper authorities. He also tells them all to stop acting weird and become a normal school.

Laybourne’s reason for wanting Troy at the school is finally revealed: Troy’s destiny is to become “The Truest Repairman “.

The faces of the A/C Repair School Edit

Robert Laybourne. The Vice Dean of Greendale and head of the A/C Repair School who has made it his mission to get Troy Barnes enrolled at his school. His first appearance is in “Biology 101 “. He is portrayed by John Goodman.

Murray. The vice dean’s second-in-command who discovers Troy’s talents as a repairman. His loyalty to Laybourne is revealed to be a facade for his own ambitions. His first appearance is in “Advanced Gay “. He is portrayed by Dan Bakkedahl.

Troy Barnes. A student at Greendale who possesses a natural talent for fixing things. Laybourne tries to get him enrolled at his school, believing Troy to be “The Truest Repairman “. His first appearance is in the pilot. He is portrayed by Donald Glover .

The Chaplain. The spiritual leader of the school who is well-versed in the sacred writings found in “The Air Conditioning Repair Manual “. His first and only appearance is in “Introduction to Finality “. He is portrayed by John O’Brien.

Dennis. A colorful A/C repairman who handles the M.C.duties when there is a duel inside The Sun Chamber. His first and only appearance is in “Introduction to Finality “. He is portrayed by Hal Rudnick.

Russo. Another A/C repairman who takes over the hosting duties form Dennis and provides a clearer explanation of how the competition inside The Sun Chamber works. His first and only appearance is “Introduction to Finality “. He is portrayed by Robert Hassie.

Astronaut making paninis. Someone hired by the A/C school to discredit anyone’s account of the initiation into the school in case they try to tell anyone about the experience. His first and only appearance is in “Advanced Gay “.

Black Hitler. Another person hired by the A/C school to discredit anyone’s account of the initiation into the school in case they try to tell anyone about the experience. His first and only appearance is in “Advanced Gay “.

Saint Louis Community College Wait List

I am in my last semester of pre-requisite nursing classes at St. Louis Community College, and when I first went to Meramec (in August of 2006), I applied to be on the waiting list for the nursing program. I got a letter saying I would get in during this semester (Spring of 2008), so it almost took two years! Each semester they sent me a letter regarding where I was at on the list. However, I turned down the offer (hopefully giving someone else on the waiting list a chance), because I want to get my BSN by 2010..and doing Meramec’s program would throw that goal way off. I recently applied to UMSL’s traditional BSN program, as well as their Accelerated BSN program, and now its just a game of waiting to find out if I got in! I have only heard great things about STLCC’s nursing program from many people in my various classes. So I am positive it is worth the wait for everyone. Good luck to all!

I applied to STLCC at Flo Valley and Forest Park in October (after passing the dosage calculations test) and received a letter from Flo Valley that I would be in for Fall of this year. Forest Park currently has me on the waiting list at number 120. It doesn’t matter, because I am admitted for the Fall 2008 class at St. Charles Community College and will go there instead. I don’t know how long the wait will be at Forest Park, however, I’m going to decline my admission at Flo Valley, so a spot will open up there. Unfortunately it will go to the next person on the list. Flo Valley only admits in the fall, however, Forest Park admits in the spring and fall, so you may have a chance there.

Just apply to as many schools as possible. You’ll get in somewhere. Good luck!

I started in Florissant Valley’s program. They told me it was a 2 year wait list, and it ended up being 1. Which was perfect b/c i got all of my pre reqs out of the way and played softball for a year. The problem is that 3rd and 4th semester is HORRIBLE THERE! They fail at least 1/2 of their students and are getting sued for discrimmination AGAIN. My word of advice, go to Forest Park, I’m a recent grad from there, they start both semesters (Flo only does one) and they are GREAT. passed NCLEX in 75 questions and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOREST PARK.

They have closed finals, you never get to see your final they just give you your score, so you have no idea on what you got wrong. Many people who were passing find out that they failed by one point, but are denied being able to see it. Seems kinda fishy.

I’m not sure that this is a huge issue so far as any discrimination suit goes. I attend Meramec and each semester up to this, my 4th, it has been standard policy. I would guess FP’s is the same as it’s in our general syllabus each semester that is for all 3 campuses. I don’t necessarily like the policy, but it is what it is. As for it being fishy , I’m thinking not really. at least as it relates to all the campuses. for whatever reason it is that they do it.

I went there the first year and it was GREAT. The teachers are fabulous for the first year. Then 3rd-4th semester they switch teachers and it gets crazy. They have actually been sued for this before and lost and ended up paying for a students entire education.

This switching of the teachers is also fairly common, I believe. Each semester we have a different set of instructors. It’s not a conspiracy; it’s just that each semester’s teachers has their own set of strengths that they bring to the classroom for the subject matter being covered that semester. Are some better than others? You bet, but I found that to be the same while taking English, sciences, history, math, etc.

I’m sorry you had a bad experience at Flo Valley, but the fact of the matter is that they do graduate students who do pass the NCLEX and they do have a high pass rate to show for that. Read around on allnurses; that pass rate IS primarily what school is about these days. If you can’t graduate students who can pass the boards, then what’s the point.

Last edit by WDWpixieRN on Feb 22, ’08

I’m not sure what’s up with FLo. It is strange that they start with a class of 60 and only graduate 18-20 students. This semester at Forest Park we have about 15 students who transfered in from FloValley. Almost all their comments echo some of the things this poster has said.(Didnt know anything about a lawsuit though).(Whoever the person suing must have an idiot for an attorney because the first thing you are told in any lawsuit is not to talk to anyone about it. Oh well just my two cents! ) I did notice in the latest NCLEX results posted on the MO BON website they dropped from their 100%(still above 95% though). Forest Park finally went up to 96 or 97%!HURRAY! I love Forest Park and am glad I chose to go there from the begining!
