There are exactly two places on campus, outside of the residence halls, that I feel completely at home. The first is in Chem Recitation. The second is in the office of the foreign languages department.
There’s something about being here that I love intensely; I walk in and instantly feel happier. I think it’s because this is the only place on campus where you can easily find someone who is studying the language you’re studying, or who is studying a completely different language. I also like hearing all of the professors speak in their languages—it’s always really cool to hear people conversing in Chinese or German or French.
Of course, it could just be because of this awesome Japanese bulletin board.
