I enjoy being at the Orchid House because it provides me a home away from home, where I meet new people, see new places and learn new things. A great place to be.

I felt like I traveled from one home to another when I arrived at the Orchid House. It’s such a beautiful and fun place to stay, it feels more like a house than a college dorm. It really helped me find good friends and experience SB.

The Orchid House is a very supportive place to learn. It also gives you the freedom to have fun and is full of good people.
