In a few days, it will mark the one month point of living here at APU. Its surreal how fast time has already flown by, and as much as it’s strange adjusting to life somewhere other then at “home,” my new home here at APU is remarkable. I have the privilege of living in Trinity Hall, and I have to say that it is nothing like I ever imagined. In a good way. I don’t think you can ever prepare for the ‘amazingness’ that is college life. Being able to live in a hall with 40+ SISTERS is more fun then I could ever put into words.
I am blessed beyond means with an amazing Resident Advisor (RA); an upperclassman that loves on us and makes our experience here even more fun. In addition, her roommate, our Resident Advisor Roommate (RAR) is equally involved and is constantly around the hall hanging out with us girls. It’s crazy how fast a group of girls can bond- I could not be more thankful for this hall. Being able to constantly have someone to talk to, pray with, study with, or go to dinner with is a blessing. God has placed me exactly where I need to be and its a comforting feeling. I can honestly tell you though, that every single one of the freshmen dorms are amazing. Although I proudly would tell you that Trinity Hall is the best dorm at APU, there is always something to do and there is never a dull moment in any of the dorms. Friends of mine that are living in Adams, Engstrom, and Smith (the other dorms) love it just as much as I do.
I remember just a couple months ago contemplating how life in the dorms would be. I was so used to everything at home; the people, my house, my family, my friends, my dog- that I could not picture myself somewhere entirely new. I am happy to report though, that life here at APU is priceless. I am already developing friendships that I know will exceed much past college, the living situation could not be better, and even though I miss my friends and family, it is such a loving environment here and it feels like home already. I consider my hallmates like family… It’s kinda rad to have two families now.
