In retrospect, there was no better choice for college than St Hilda's. When you move to any new place, especially when travelling from interstate or overseas, you're scared. No matter how confident, well - prepared and personable you are; you are scared. I don't think I've had those anxieties lifted so fast anywhere than Hilda's. The community is welcoming, inclusive and even if you feel as if you don't fit in at first you will find your people here.
