ST. AUGUSTINE’S AS SEEN THROUGH A
liu A Frksiimax
After a freshman’s sojourn in college for the
api)roximate time of two to four weeks, one ques
tion is continually asked him. That is, “How do
you like college?” Heretofore I have usually re
sponded with a short remark as, “It’s fine,” or
“It’s grand!” Now, given the opportunity to do
so, I will give a fuller response.
Whereas I had expected to find a cold, formid
able place I was given the pleasant surprise of
finding that college contains a warm, friendly
atmosphere. Every one proved to be so pleasant
and friendly that one could not help but fall in
line with everything.
The dormitory is large, well kept, and equipped
with all modern improvements. I have been for
tunate in securing for a room-mate a girl who
has all the qualities that one can desire in an
One’s home environment contains interest, love,
friendliness, cheerfulness, cleanliness, and offers
companionship. Considering these facts I feel
confident that my stay at St. Augustine’s College
will bo spent in contentment, for it has all the
characteristics of being a close equivalent of home
