Most students who do well in high school, try their best to get into the best colleges for their higher studies. These colleges may be the best ones available in their own country or other countries. Some children pay a huge sum of money and even do part time jobs to earn enough to manage the expenses they have to go through. People go through so much to get into these colleges for the reputation these colleges hold, and also because they think that they want the best education and also they expect these colleges can provide them with the best of opportunities and other experiences that could be an advantage for their portfolio and career.
However, some families do not like their children going so far away. They worry if their children would be safe, if they will look after themselves well. Some children even get home sick after they leave for college. Yet somehow both sides cooperate, manage and support each other because they want the best for their children.
Hostel – Home for Students
When children go away from home for higher studies, most of them live in the college hostel. They consider living in the hostel not only because it is next to the college but it also gives them a safe place to stay in, since they would be living with their college mates.
Hostels provide individual rooms, or sharing rooms. These rooms have single beds or bunk beds in Sydney if the students are sharing. They have a small kitchen where the students can prepare their own meals. A small washroom, and a table. The students can decorate it and set it the way they want. These rooms are made comfortable and easy for the students. Some colleges however make sure that the rooms are well maintained and kept clean because that is also a part of the reputation a hostel holds.
Hostels Made Fun
Some hostels even have other facilities apart from the ones in their room that they can enjoy. Some of these facilities include a TV lounge where they can enjoy watching television together with other students. They have game rooms where they could play indoor games such as pool or dart games. They provide free internet access and even a laundry room. As a result along with the studies the students can have fun with their mates. This would make the hostel a paradise as the children are free and happy. Children though under supervision and care from the college will learn to be independent, make decisions for themselves and take care of themselves in a more matured and organized manner.
