a hotel!" When I opened the door of my friend's
dorm, I could’t believe I was in a student hostel. The setting
of the room just resembles those small hotels' room. Agree?
what I felt when I first came to this hall to visit my friend.
Two months later, I moved into this "hotel". Since
then, I have fallen in love with it.
The facilities are superb, but they are not
the only reason why this place is so enchanting. It was the
people who encroach on and enhance our lives.
in the girls' dorm. Many people told me that the lady’s hall
was always boring, having no fun and no guys! Well, I don't
care or believe them at all.
in this fabulous ladies' hall is that we have regular gatherings
every Thursday evening. For instance, we have the sweet soup,
herbal tea and fruit gatherings; films, karaoke or games night.
We have a cleaner kitchen than all the other halls. We win
the cleaning competition every year. We show love and care
to each other. Xuemin is the most friendly and warmest hall
(the comment I heard from residents of other halls). Another
thing, which impressed me, is our warden, Jenny, who joins
nearly all those gatherings we have. Her presence tells us
she wants to know more about us, wants to share and supports
us in the ways she can.
I am thankful
for the effort put by the hall management team, which makes
this a "home away from home" so charming to me.
People working here and helping us to make lives easier are
gracious. I appreciate all their work. What’s more, I enjoy
all those hall education classes, like Yoga, Chinese Painting,
dancing and so on.
If you had not lived in the dormitory before,
I would highly recommend you to join us here. Living in the
student hall is not only about learning to be independent,
but also learning the arts of life and getting along with
people. Hope to see you around!
