I&rsquo;m from the wonderful residence hall of Schwalm, but I love blogging, so I&rsquo;m just going to tell you about Oakwood. Don&rsquo;t worry! I brought my friend and resident of Oakwood, Ashley Martin, to help me out in finding the highlights of the hall. So, sit back and relax!<br /> <br /> <img src="/images/default-source/default-album/img_3100.jpg?sfvrsn=1c72ba62_0&amp;MaxWidth=600&amp;MaxHeight=&amp;ScaleUp=false&amp;Quality=High&amp;Method=ResizeFitToAreaArguments&amp;Signature=A52558554C558C03490EBF0CDEBBE2A98815BEF9" data-method="ResizeFitToAreaArguments" data-customsizemethodproperties="{'MaxWidth':'600','MaxHeight':'','ScaleUp':false,'Quality':'High'}" data-displaymode="Custom" alt="OakwoodHall" title="OakwoodHall" /> </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 Oakwood. There&rsquo;s 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. Oakwood is known for being a quiet dorm which is good if you&rsquo;re a person who likes to study or nap.<br /> <img src="/images/default-source/default-album/img_3104.jpg?sfvrsn=2772ba62_0&amp;MaxWidth=600&amp;MaxHeight=&amp;ScaleUp=false&amp;Quality=High&amp;Method=ResizeFitToAreaArguments&amp;Signature=FCF4F87800F511A9861BF65AC470323D7BC263B7" data-displaymode="Custom" alt="OakwoodHall" title="OakwoodHall" data-method="ResizeFitToAreaArguments" data-customsizemethodproperties="{'MaxWidth':'600','MaxHeight':'','ScaleUp':false,'Quality':'High'}" /></li> <li><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Entertainment-</span> There are many sources of entertainment inside the building. Oakwood 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.<br /> <img src="/images/default-source/default-album/img_3105.jpg?sfvrsn=d873ba62_0&amp;MaxWidth=600&amp;MaxHeight=&amp;ScaleUp=false&amp;Quality=High&amp;Method=ResizeFitToAreaArguments&amp;Signature=7F9179A029357404324E5ADD82B95221DC1D9FCB" data-method="ResizeFitToAreaArguments" data-customsizemethodproperties="{'MaxWidth':'600','MaxHeight':'','ScaleUp':false,'Quality':'High'}" data-displaymode="Custom" alt="OakwoodHall" title="OakwoodHall" /><br /> <img src="/images/default-source/default-album/img_3103.jpg?sfvrsn=cc73ba62_0&amp;MaxWidth=600&amp;MaxHeight=&amp;ScaleUp=false&amp;Quality=High&amp;Method=ResizeFitToAreaArguments&amp;Signature=0B3AF2D55AC970CB5F2B15B75C82B1674792F967" data-method="ResizeFitToAreaArguments" data-customsizemethodproperties="{'MaxWidth':'600','MaxHeight':'','ScaleUp':false,'Quality':'High'}" data-displaymode="Custom" alt="OakwoodHall" title="OakwoodHall" /><br /> <span style="text-decoration: underline;"></span></li> <li><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Fun Bulletin Boards and Artwork-</span> As a senior, I&rsquo;ve developed good habits on time management and managing stress levels. However, when I was a first year it didn&rsquo;t come to me. The motivational bulletin boards on each floor offer tips and change periodically. They are a nice refreshing daily reminder that you&rsquo;re never truly alone.<br /> <img src="/images/default-source/default-album/img_3107.jpg?sfvrsn=e073ba62_0&amp;MaxWidth=600&amp;MaxHeight=&amp;ScaleUp=false&amp;Quality=High&amp;Method=ResizeFitToAreaArguments&amp;Signature=A364BD9D07443F77813344135D9F5900D808FB6C" data-method="ResizeFitToAreaArguments" data-customsizemethodproperties="{'MaxWidth':'600','MaxHeight':'','ScaleUp':false,'Quality':'High'}" data-displaymode="Custom" alt="OakwoodHall" title="OakwoodHall" /><br /> <img src="/images/default-source/default-album/img_3108.jpg?sfvrsn=9473ba62_0&amp;MaxWidth=600&amp;MaxHeight=&amp;ScaleUp=false&amp;Quality=High&amp;Method=ResizeFitToAreaArguments&amp;Signature=4BA0607329041C1769EE06B8CE733EB624F75C80" data-method="ResizeFitToAreaArguments" data-customsizemethodproperties="{'MaxWidth':'600','MaxHeight':'','ScaleUp':false,'Quality':'High'}" data-displaymode="Custom" alt="OakwoodHall" title="OakwoodHall" /></li> </ol> <p>Ashley Martin, a senior resident, says, &ldquo;I love how quiet Oakwood is and how respectful everyone is to each other.&rdquo; &nbsp;</p> <p>If you like all of these amenities, but a seek a more social dorm check out my blog on Helman!&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.
