Dorm Life At A Boarding School

christian boarding school, international students, dorm life,

Second semester is underway for our 2015-2016 school year at Canyonville Christian Academy.

Students arrived back to campus early January from their Christmas Break and have been swapping stories about their winter adventures. In preparing for Semester Final Exams, the girls worked on research papers and essays, reviewed notes for their classes, and collaborated on group projects in order to give a final boost to their grades. In our dorm store, we supply the girls with various items that come in handy when preparing for exams: notecards, pencils, snacks, and highlighters. It was a great semester made up of laughter with friends, meaningful conversations with roommates, encouragement from staff members, and the forming of fond memories.

In between cheer competitions, basketball games, homework, and chores, we have started a new tradition to start the semester – Friday Night Movies! We gather together to watch movies and taste food from different countries other than our own. Another highlight of this semester are the 2nd Semester students that have joined us in Hinn Hall. There was much anticipation and excitement over meeting these girls and the potential friendships that would form.

At some point this semester we will plan different parties/game-nights for Hinn Hall as well as continue our new tradition of Friday Night Movies in the lounge and decorating  the girls’ room doors for their birthdays.

This semester will have its share of joy, meaningful conversations, growth, and laughter in the dorm. Not at all bad ways to start off a new year and new semester.
