Hi family, Kat here!
We love our campus! It is home for so many of us, and we love discovering new things about it. That's why we wanted to share some humorous facts about it, so you can get excited to come and explore it for yourself!
There are many of them here. We don't really know where they come from, and we don't know when they leave. All we know is that someone feeds them, so you must not do this! If you do, they might take over campus. They sing at night, they sometimes steal our food and they may or may not have fleas, so we recommend not touching them. We love them though. They add flavor. And who doesn't love a pet?!
2. Stairs of glory
To leave or enter campus, we have 76 stairs you need to climb. We refer to them as the stairs of glory, as they keep us fit and really bring us to a new level of humility (sweat running down your face and wheezing because you can't properly breathe). Every climb is a victory and you will never feel more accomplished!
3. The best water fountain
There are several water fountains around campus, but this is by far the best one. Cold, delicious water, a chair if you are tired and a stool for the shorter ones among us. We have recently acquired two new water fountains by the prayer room, but I have not been able to really test them yet, so this is still my go-to one. Sadie seems pleased with it too.
4. Take a seat
We like to sit. We sit while we eat, talk, write, blog, think, etc. Luckily for us, there are lots of good sitting options around campus! This particular bench is located right under a banyan tree, outside of building A. You can bring your food, some friends, or maybe a cat, and chill in the shade of the tree. It's pretty sweet.
5. The air conditioned prayer room
We are not gonna lie, Hawaii is hot. We love being able to wear our shorts and dresses, but sometimes you just need to cool down. Therefore, we love the prayer room! I mean, obviously we also love it because we can pray and worship, but it is the only room on campus with air conditioning, so we love it a little extra!
There are a lot more fun facts about this place, but we'll let you discover those on your own! This is our home and we hope you will come to love it just as much as we do. I hope you enjoyed our 5 fun facts starring: grumpy cat, real Kat, Sadie, and random prayer room dude. Coming soon will be a campus tour so you can see a bigger picture.
