CAMPUS: What Do Current Students Like Most About the Dominica Campus?

June 07, 2016

What do RUSM students like best about the Dominica campus? We posed the question to random individuals seated in the Student Center food court.  Here are some of their responses:

George Abuaita, a second semester student, said, “It’s nice to hang out right here [in the Student Center food court] and de-stress. There’s a TV on a sports channel, and food everywhere. I can get away from the books, even if only for 10 or 15 minutes.” George earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Michigan and has been a member of the Salybia Mission Club since his first semester at RUSM.

Jasmine Bajwa, a first semester student who graduated from the University of California at Riverside, said she and her friends like to go to the pier by Le Flambeau to watch the sunset. “I found my niche and figured out where I’m most comfortable studying,” she added. “The old library, we call it the ‘fishbowl.’ There’s no socializing and no distractions.”

Samuel Adepogu, from Oakwood University in Huntsville, Alabama, is in his first semester at RUSM. “I like the Student Center cafeteria,” he said. He was enjoying a breakfast of chocolate chip pancakes and eggs, and said that he eats other meals there as well. Samuel is a member of several clubs, including the Organization of African Students, the Salybia Mission Project, the neuroscience club, and the American Medical Students’ Association.

Gemstonn Alegre earned his undergraduate degree at Hunter College in NY. The second semester student said, “I like to go to the Seaside Deck when I’m feeling a little bit overwhelmed and need a time-out. I just go there and watch the awesome sunset.” He said that during his first semester he moved around from one study space to another. “I moved from the Student Center to a classroom to the Seaside Deck.” Now he studies in the old library. “It’s called the fishbowl because of the windows,” he said. “It’s the most stable spot.”
