Ah, you’ve been assigned to Sunday Hall. What did you do? Skipped class, an afternoon commitment, or worse? Sunday Hall has long held a frowned-upon reputation. It is one of the greatest inconveniences you will encounter during your time on the Hill. However, fear not, as dreadful and depressing as the thought of attending Sunday Hall is, I am here to provide a combination of logic, advice, and tips that will hopefully turn 90 minutes in Sejong into success.
Undoubtedly, Sunday Hall tests the patience and strength of our community while simultaneously and transparently revealing our weaknesses. Personally, and I know my opinion matters, I LOVE Sunday Hall.
While the walk to Sejong is treacherous and sometimes can create a sense of reluctance to attend during the colder months, it is all worth it. Sunday Hall provides the perfect opportunity to complete ½ or ⅓ of your homework and it does so in a manner that prevents any further sacrifice of your sole weekend-day. Additionally, assigned Sunday Hall eliminates all previous negative sentiments stemming from having to leave a particular activity or pastime.
To make the most out of your Sunday Hall and set yourself up for success before the day officially begins, I recommend packing some supplies: water, headphones, chargers, and a snack. Happy studying, and remember to take advantage of opportunities like Sunday Hall to complete your work!
Disclaimer: In no way, shape or form does this article intend to serve as an encouragement to be assigned Sunday Hall; as tempting as it is, it is simply not a Martlet move. If it happens, it happens.
