Hostel life here is very different from other hostels. I have been staying in hostel for the past three-four years. My under-graduation hostel life was really complicated! There were so many restrictions and do’s and don’ts. Everyone was self centred and busy in their own world.
But here at Jaipuria-Noida, since the number of students is few, everyone knows everyone here. I feel Jaipuria Noida’s hostel is very different from any other hostel. So our communication is very clear and everyone understands. As far as the facilities are concerned, i feel the money we invested while opting for the Hostel was money well spent. We enjoy the facilities of a Gym, a common room,a badminton court. Also our suggestions are heard.
I am in the food committee of the hostel. We had recommended a gas stove to be put in the hostel. So now, the mess remains open at night and boys can go and cook- maggi or tea! I also am the coordinator of a Movie club in the college- but that’s another story!
The hostel is 2.5 kms away from the college. And we can enter the hostel by 9 pm. We hang out in the malls recently and there’s a bazaar nearby which is more conveniently located. It’s really fun. Lunch – we eat at the mess at the college. Breakfast, snacks and dinner are served in the boys hostel mess.
Just today we were watching the match and created a ruckus in the common room.The warden sir came running to quieten us. After we became a little controlled, he joined us and actually enjoyed the match with us. It was really funny and cool at the same time. Here there are representatives from each year. Students can volunteer for the representative’s post. Among the many volunteers one passes the interview by the faculty
During exam time the atmosphere in the hostel is very different. We usually have a group of five students who take up one subject (which one is good at) each and discuss after college in study groups. During exam time, this becomes even more intensive and regularized. We also organize festivals like welcome party for fresher’s and farewell.
In the evenings sometimes we find the time to play badminton, or i play the guitar with another friend of mine who is also good at it. It really helps to relax. Some students may join and listen in, some may sing impromptu. But it’s really great to share camaraderie with fellow students here.
