This past Saturday night, the boys scrambled to clean their rooms for the Boys' Dorm Open House. This is the one event where the girls are actually allowed into the Boys' Dorm! The girls thought it was quite an experience seeing the men’s dormitory because most of them have never seen it before. Christmas music played as the girls got to hang out in their friends' rooms. The boys got creative with decorating for Christmas season. Different colored lights were strung, and mini Christmas trees were decorated! The Residence Assistants of the Ladies Dormitory thought their paper stocking name tags were a head turner because they had never done any decorations for their doors. Some rooms even had candy for everyone. Thank you boys for your hospitality!

The Ladies’ Dormitory celebrated twelve days of Christmas to lighten up the holiday spirit. Each day, the girls received a little treat from the Deans to celebrate Christmas. Junior student Beverly Onsoe said, “I love how they gave some nice complementary food which gave us the taste of Christmas.” Every hall in the girls dorm enjoyed every treat, especially with finals around the corner. It was a stress-reliever during the time frame of study hall. For the ninth day of Christmas, the Deans prepared a craft which was decorating ornaments. Sophomore student Odalis Mata says, “It’s been pretty fun! It’s a good way to bond with the other girls as we were decorating ornaments together.” After a long day of finals, it was nice coming back to the dorm to relax and spend some time with the girls. Junior student Adrianna Cambpell said, “I loved being able to interact with the girls, especially since I’m new here. I also liked being creative, not only in the halls, but with the ornaments. It was a great way to get ready for Christmas.” Many girls loved the activities and enjoyed the hot chocolate bar provided as well. As finals are coming to an end, the girls cannot wait to go home and share their Christmas ornaments with their family and relax for the next couple weeks.
