After the homework has been piled and the determination of who your real friends are has begun to set in, the realization hits that the first semester of the college year is coming to an end. That can only mean one thing, the holidays are about to start snowing in!
A lot of students at Chaminade University, who aren’t from the isle, decide to spend their holidays at home, which can be in various locations.
Freshman Alex Pilcher, who is living in the freshman only dorm, is from the village of Mongmong, Guam.
“The best thing about going home is getting better food and being able to see my little two year old sister who I miss very much,” says a smiling Pilcher when asked what he is looking forward to when he heads back to Guam. “I heard she’s looking forward to seeing me again for Christmas.”
Freshman Terrance Aikens from Los Angeles, California, is traveling the 2,500 miles back home to spend his Christmas break with family and friends.
“I’m looking forward to eating on some good food too,” says Aikens.
Freshman friends, Shannon Whener and Andreana Agcaoili are both going back home to Maui to spend time with each other and their family and friends.
When Christmas is so close, the only thing most students want to do is get back home to enjoy the fun, leisure, and the holidays.
