    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Dorm Life

I am going to take a bold move and write briefly about living on campus in the apartments! See, I only lived in the dorms, Somers Suites, briefly over summer 2016. The majority of my time here at CSS was spent living in the apartments.

1st Year:

I lived in Kerst Apartment, the farthest apartment from Tower Hall and arguably the most beautiful apartment. It’s pristine and afforded me a good 10 minute walk or so, if I wasn’t in a hurry, to all my classes. However, the walk was terrible during winter. I would not want to wish anyone the experience of walking against howling and icy cold winds coming at you as you trudge ankle deep in snow. Nonetheless, as most of my roommates and friends who have shared in the experience say, “it’s worth it!”.

2nd Year:

I lived in Pine Apartment, one of the four Bricks Apartments (because it’s made of bricks and shaped like a brick?). I was convinced that living in Pine, which is just across the street from the Reif Gymnasium would prompt me to workout more. Let’s just say I was proven wrong. The walk to classes and pretty much anywhere on campus was short, as Pine is almost centrally located.

3rd Year:

Having had my fair share of Pine for a year, I moved to Cedar. That’s all there’s to say about that for now.

4th and Final Year:

Whoever said “the first cut is the deepest” had some foresight. I moved back to Kerst for my final year, to finish it off where it started! I am glad of this experience and thankful to have been part of various communities over the past four years!


Here’s to a wonderful life!
