Usually, boys aren’t allowed within a 20-foot radius of the Girl’s Residence Hall, and girls can never go up the stairway in the Hankin’s Hall tower, but this past Saturday night, mixed company could be found intermingling in both the boys’ and girls’ hallways. Campion Academy brought back the tradition of holding an open house where each group could explore the other’s living quarters.
Each residence hall has its unique features, and the students were surprised to find that they weren’t quite what they expected. “The guys' dorm smelled really good and the rooms were clean!” sophomore Damaris Lopez commented, “What was weird to me was that there are different levels in the dorm and they have to share one big bathroom while we have our own bathrooms.”
Keaton Drake, sophomore, shared his thoughts on the girl’s hall; “The girl’s dorm is all one level; it’s weird that they have four halls and the layout was completely different. It was neat to see how they had different layouts in their rooms and how their beds could be bunk beds and be raised. They also had their personal bathrooms and sinks which I’m very jealous of. It was also cool to see all the decorations of the halls,” he said.
Along with seeing how life is like in the other dorm, the students participated in a contest. For the boys, the contest was who had the cleanest and best room. That award went to Marc Winokan and Aaron Lumowa.
The contest for the girls was for the best hall, and each of the four halls was decorated in a different theme, including: cars, fairy tales, Pac-Man, and Marvel. Senior, and RA for the Marvel-themed hall, Faith Evert explained, “It was really fun and super surprising when we won because all the halls did really well. We went through a lot of work hanging things and then running out of tape. Overall though, it was a cute bonding experience with my girls.”
