Today, we will say goodbye to the Monastery. It was EC San Francisco’s residence for over 5 years. During these years, The Monastery welcomed hundreds of students from all around the world. Living there allowed students to meet new people, to spend good times together, and mostly, to practice and improve their English!
Usually, Monasterians could gather together in the student lounge to play games, to have dinner, to chat… Or they could meet in the kitchen to cook together, and share their culinary cultures. It was always nice to hang out in the lounge, because you could always meet a friend or people from the school that you do not know, and get to talk with them.
The Monastery also had a roof top with amazing views of the Mission neighborhood, Twin Peaks, and the downtown area. EC had a lot of activities there, especially barbecues. It was a great way for everyone to get to know each other and continue to practice their English with each other.
One chapter closes, but another one opens
As the intern of EC San Francisco, I lived at the Monastery for almost three months. I consider this place like my home away from home, and I think everyone who has lived in this place could say the same. We all made unforgettable memories there that we will always cherish. I am very happy that I lived there and got to spend great times with the Monasterians.
One chapter closes, but others immediately open! We are very excited at EC San Francisco to welcome our students to three other residences, The Monroe, The Columbus and Ventaggio Turk.
