Dorm Family Night Theme-“SMILE”

Midkiff dorm enjoyed Robocook’s lightning fast service. Afterwards students enjoyed shopping downtown, studying in a coffeeshop, or singing their favourite songs at a Norebang.

Later a visit to the disco pang pang turned out to be a blast.  No injuries but maybe some bumps and bruises.

Ward Dorm smiles once they sunk their teeth into their anticipated special family dinner excursion.

Murphy Dorm pulled up their sleeves and prepared a BBQ dinner before heading out to Laser Tag

Adams Dorm filled their bellies at Ashleys before watching a movie with popcorn and treats.

And my personal favorite family night photo is of PJ from Adams Dorm.

March 1st Activities

littledudes2_srcset-large-1Bubble Ball is Coming to TCIS Dorm Soon 

March 1st will be no school for TCIS students and since it’s in the middle of the week the Residence Life Program will be hosting some fun and exciting activities for all dorm students. Tuesday after school students will have a chance to sign out to Techno Valley to enjoy all the activities they usually save for the week-end. Students can unwind by going to their favorite PC Bang, Nore Bang, or enjoy a hot cup of coffee at the host of coffee shops that can be found in Techno Valley. In the evening students can gather around the campfire and enjoy some hot-dogs, smores, and a steaming cup of hot chocolate. Who knows maybe we will even sing some good old-fashion campfire songs.

Wednesday is Korea’s Independence Holiday and TCIS dorm students will have the freedom to sleep-in after a fun-filled evening. After brunch each dorm will enjoy some friendly games of Bubble Ball on our soccer field just steps away from their cozy warm beds. Once each dorm gets a few games under their belts the All Stars from each dorm will have a chance to represent their dorm family name and compete to win a delicious treat for their entire dorm family !

새해 복 많이 받으세요

From the Residence Life Office

This new semester has had a busy start already but it has been very good. We have had the privilege of welcoming 6 new students into the program with 3 more yet to arrive after the Lunar Holiday. I have more interviews this week and anticipate more growth.

We have several of our boarding students out for APAC tournaments in Hong Kong at the moment and are cheering for them online and praying for their health and safety.

We are celebrating with our seniors some very impressive college acceptances and we congratulate each of them for all of their hard work. We are proud of the support of the parents and the residence program in supporting our students along the way.

The Residence Life staff are celebrating their hard work o the ACSI Accreditation study. The ACSI report has revealed so many strengths in the program and we look forward to the actual visit and assessment in March.TCIS boarding program has always served as a leader among boarding programs.

The Residence Office has been busy with the development of some policy work and the program is engaged in several improvement projects. We are always looking for ways to serve our families better and we are excited about some of our ideas.

As the Lunar Holiday approaches, we recognize the significance of this time for many of our families. We wish you all the best with your families during this break and we look forward to hearing from your children about the excitement of the holiday.

From our dorms to your homes we wish you all a Happy Lunar Holiday!

Bus Loads of Fun

Adams Dorm Family

Dorm families loaded up the buses and headed off campus for a special night of unwinding and fine dining. Dorm Family Nights are a great break from the daily grind and routine of regular dorm life. Dorm staff look forward to this special evening out with their dorm families and the timing couldn’t be more perfect just before students have to buckle down and concentrate on final assessments.

Adams Dorm family discovered and enjoyed a new restaurant called “Salt & Pepper’s” where their giant portions of ribs were a hit with the carnivorous Adams boys. A Christmas themed party followed back at the dorm with sweets, treats, and surprises.

The Ward Empire had a blast being one of the first to experience Lazer tag during their night away. No man was left behind when they experienced some fusion type food from PanAsia which has a mixed menu from Thailand and Indonesia. Sharing is caring and freshly made buckets of fruity Mojitos turns friends into family in no time flat.

Murphy’s, Midkiff’s, and Ward’s visited the new downtown Dunsan dong shops that is always bussling with activity where a variety of clothing stores, PC bangs, Norebangs, restaurants, and coffee shops are always a favorite for our diverse tastes amongs our dorm students. Students scurried to find that perfect gift for their dorm sister and brother with many Secret Santa parties soon to be had.
