Emma, Senior Resident at Ursula Hall

If you're stressed about your studies, there are people around you at Ursula Hall that you can talk to.

"I arrived here from overseas and within weeks, I felt like this was my second home. It's a place where you feel safe to try new things. I've done things I would never have dreamed of, like Inward Bound. I've gone from being the kid at school who never played sport to being able to run a 40km race through the bush. My high school self would be so surprised to hear about me doing all these things.

Having a balance of study and extra-curricular activities is so important. If you're stressed about your studies, there are people around you at Ursula Hall that you can talk to. The calendar of activities and regular social interaction help you from getting too caught up in your own world.

"I love mealtimes at Ursula. Some of the most inspiring and intellectually stimulating conversations I've had have been over dinner when we're sitting around and we don't quite want to go upstairs yet and we start discussing everything from science to philosophy to how to save the world. It just happens everyday in the dining hall."
