Halls or hostels?

Rehma Juma

What’s your take when it comes to choosing where to stay while studying at campus? Would you prefer to stay in the halls of residence at the institution, hostels or rentals? open up.


For three years, Ronald Ssemanda stayed at Nana hostel as he pursued his studies at Makerere University.

Everybody envied him. He had a self-contained room complete with Dstv and there was a shuttle to deliver him to campus for his lectures.

“When I was joining campus, I pestered my parents to pay for [a place in] Nana, which they did. I wanted to be special, but this status turned out to be a nightmare,” he recalls.

Although they happily paid for his accommodation, Ssemanda’s parents did not do the same when it came to upkeep. Soon Ssemanda wished he had stayed in the campus hall right from the first semester. But he had a status to keep.

For The Win

(AP) (AP)

Aaron Rodgers crumpled to the ground.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback scrambled, pulled up short, and threw a touchdown pass. He hobbled off the field with the help of two trainers. Moments later, he headed into the locker room on a cart. With the Packers up 14-7 on the Detroit Lions with the NFC North on the line, Green Bay looked rudderless.

The last time Green Bay fans winced like this, Rodgers was in a State Farm commercial.

At halftime, speculation ran wild. Would Rodgers return? Would the Packers survive? Is there anything worse than the Discount Double Check?

Dan Powers/P-C Media Dan Powers/P-C Media

Those hysterical thoughts were put to rest in the third quarter. Rodgers returned, perfectly lit up like a Lambeau deity. He connected with Randall Cobb to send Green Bay up 21-14 as the third quarter came to a close. In the fourth quarter, Rodgers put the…

Researchers found overall gender differences in male and female approaches to virginity loss, which shouldn’t surprise anyone. Men are much more likely to have a “pleasurable experience” than women (a truth universally acknowledged) but also reported more anxiety surrounding the act. Women were much more likely to feel guilty after having sex for the first time.

But the good news is that those differences have changed significantly since the research started in 1980. While men reported the same amount of “pleasure” from their first sexual experience across three decades, women have reported a significant increase in first-time-fun-times since the study began. Men also reported less anxiety over the three decades…
