Dorm Life

Hey Everyone! 

I’d just like to spend some talking about dorm life at Hope. One of things I really like about living in a dorm is that I always have someone to hang out with. I live in Voorhees and absolutely love it! A couple weekends ago we had “speed friending” and a white out dance in our basement. It was a lot of fun and I was able to meet more people living in my dorm. On a typical evening you will find people playing ping pong or pool, watching a movie, or cooking in the kitchen. There is always something going on. Sometimes we will have study sessions in the class room in the basement or do homework in each others rooms. 

I love the people in my dorm. We often eat together in the dining hall and just spend a lot of time getting to know each other. I thought I wouldn’t like having a community style bathroom, but instead I have really enjoyed it because that is where I have met a lot of the girls living on the other side of my hall. It is also nice because we do not have to clean the community bathrooms. At Hope, they keep the dorms very clean. I was also worried about having to wait for the shower, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen more than two people taking a shower at once. So I can’t complain about anything. I am extremely happy with my dorm life!

Have an awesome weekend!
