I&rsquo;m from the wonderful residence hall of Schwalm, but I love blogging so I&rsquo;m just going to tell you about Helman. Don&rsquo;t worry! I brought my friend and resident of Helman, Nathan Timmerman, to help me out in finding the highlights of the dorm. So, sit back and relax!<br /> <img src="/images/default-source/default-album/img_3117.jpg?sfvrsn=af73ba62_0&amp;MaxWidth=600&amp;MaxHeight=&amp;ScaleUp=false&amp;Quality=High&amp;Method=ResizeFitToAreaArguments&amp;Signature=AE02D5C84FB8B697C9B7A8B35C9D0E5F579FD565" data-method="ResizeFitToAreaArguments" data-customsizemethodproperties="{'MaxWidth':'600','MaxHeight':'','ScaleUp':false,'Quality':'High'}" data-displaymode="Custom" alt="Helman Hall" title="Helman Hall" /> </p> <ol> <li><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Comfy Places-</span> I can&rsquo;t tell you enough about how comfortable the chairs are in there. They have a nice fire place that you can turn off and on for those cold nights or if you&rsquo;re trying to impress a date. Me and Nathan were contemplating on life&rsquo;s great mysteries during my tour.<br /> <br /> <img src="/images/default-source/default-album/img_3119.jpg?sfvrsn=4373ba62_0&amp;MaxWidth=600&amp;MaxHeight=&amp;ScaleUp=false&amp;Quality=High&amp;Method=ResizeFitToAreaArguments&amp;Signature=ACAA074979996BF00021F82023C4A5C4ED9AAE60" data-method="ResizeFitToAreaArguments" data-customsizemethodproperties="{'MaxWidth':'600','MaxHeight':'','ScaleUp':false,'Quality':'High'}" data-displaymode="Custom" alt="Helman Hall" title="Helman Hall" /> </li> <li><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Entertainment and Art-</span> There are many sources of entertainment inside the building. Helman has a foosball table, pool table, TV, and a charging station for people like me who are too lazy to go their room to get their charger when they&rsquo;re studying. There&rsquo;s a huge black and white painting in the great room, and they also have a lovely crest. People regularly play Cards Against Humanity in the lobby. So, if you are ever bored on a Friday night just come on down and pull up a chair.</li> <li><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Charities-</span> One unique item I noticed in Helman is they have a special sitting area dedicated to 85 Hope where people can donate personal hygiene items. 85 Hope is a free medical clinic in Wabash, Indiana. </li> </ol> <p>Nathan Timmerman, a sophomore resident, says, &ldquo;I love the balance of Helman. If you want a quiet experience you can enjoy it, but if you want to be social it&rsquo;s also possible.&rdquo; </p> <p>If you like all of these amenities, but seek a quieter dorm check out my blog on Oakwood!&nbsp;</p> <img src="/images/default-source/social-media-and-official-blogs/bolanleoladokun.jpg?sfvrsn=5f75b362_0" data-displaymode="Original" alt="BolanleOladokun" title="BolanleOladokun" /><br /> <em>Bolanle Oladokun &rsquo;18 is a Communication Studies Major.
