Hostel Life in VIT

Hostel life is probably the most exciting part of anyone’s youth. This is more so in India, because of the fact that we spend most of our childhood at home under the shelter and security our parents provide us. Staying in a hostel during our college education brings with itself responsibility, challenges, mess food, and most importantly for all of us, independence. If you are holding any inhibitions regarding staying in a hostel during your college life, this article is sure to sway your opinion. Read on to know the benefits of a hostel life.

1.   You are the master of management
When allotted a small almirah and a single bed, you know very well how to make use of every nook and corner. Even a little space can serve a great purpose. From clothes and space to sleeping hours and money, you become adept at taking care of everything on your own.

2. Living life on your own terms
After spending an entirety of your life under the scrutiny of your parents, you finally get to start living your days as you deem fit. It is a responsibility too, but with a disguise of a boon. However, you get to keep your room as messy as you feel, or organised as per your comfort. There’s no stopping you from staying up all night and sleeping in the entire next day.

3. An upgraded version of you
Consciously or not, hostel life will teach you all the important lessons of life and you will carry them close to yourself, forever. For many, it starts with doing their laundry and ends with leaving college after becoming a responsible adult who can stand on his feet. Day by day, you learn to adjust with your roommates and hostel neighbours, respecting others’ privacies, helping each other in times of need, and ultimately managing all of your chores throughout the day. And you will accomplish all of this apart from the academics you tend to anyway.

4. Late night food
Who has never been hungry in the middle of the night? Hostels got you covered with their night canteens! Especially if you didn’t have enough of that appalling mess dinner, canteen always welcomes you with its open arms.

5. Emotional homecoming
After an exhausting rollercoaster of a semester, returning home after your exams is almost like returning fatigued from a war. The hostel experience makes it all the more exciting, and you will have new found love and respect for the food your mom cooks.

6. Group study
The name says it all. A group of your friends and you, sitting together believing they can conquer the world, much less study the actual subject. Everyone comes up with a new theory and angle about almost everything. When you’re finally done with a group session, you realise that studying wasn’t the actual priority, it was entertainment. Back to your room to restart preparation for the entire subject…

7. Gaming sessions
10+ individuals in a small room. Cursing others for a small mistake which cost the team a single round of Counter Strike (and the curses are way louder than one can imagine). The thrill of the deciding round. Making the entire batch bunk classes because you want to play all night (Yeah, this really happened but with some consequences). Ah! the bliss.

8. Win friends for life
No wonder there are several movies about the nostalgia associated with college times! You will meet so many diverse people in your term at hostel and befriend many of them. But there will be few with whom you will spend most of your hours. The special charm about hostel life is how it provides you access to your friend at any hour of the day or night! Don’t you wish you could chat with your friends all night back in school? These friends will stand through your hardships and cheerful moments. Be it poor grades or awesome placement packages, they’ve been there all along.

Panicking about life at hostel is absolutely unnecessary. This experience is an experience for many lifetimes, let alone one. The experience and qualities gained from this stay shall serve you forever, be it in the form of a story for someone, or a way to tackle some problem in life.
