    Helman Hall
    Hey, guys! I’m from the wonderful residence hall of Schwalm, but I love blogging so I’m just going to tell you about Helman. Don’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!

    1. Comfy Places- I can’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’re trying to impress a date. Me and Nathan were contemplating on life’s great mysteries during my tour.

    2. Entertainment and Art- 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’re studying. There’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.
    3. Charities- 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.

    Nathan Timmerman, a sophomore resident, says, “I love the balance of Helman. If you want a quiet experience you can enjoy it, but if you want to be social it’s also possible.”

    If you like all of these amenities, but seek a quieter dorm check out my blog on Oakwood!
