He’s looking forward to learning more about the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood and getting to know all the residents at the St. George Towers. He’s thinking of doing a bike tour of Brooklyn on his bike, since biking is an excellent way to see NYC's sights. He definitely recommends residents rent a bike for a weekend and take time to explore their environment in a fun and easy way! “I love how EHS feels like my home. Meeting a diverse group of people from all over the world is a great plus to living with EHS. Don’t stay in your room and watch movies when you can go to the places they're filmed!”

  • Lola Jacobs

    Resident Advisor

    Lola Jacobs

    Resident Advisor

    Lola Jacobs attends Baruch College and is pursuing a degree in English and Writing. Although she calls Brooklyn home, her favorite thing to do is sightsee in NYC. She never gets tired of it since there is always something new to see. When she’s not out exploring, she enjoys reading, writing, running, or snacking on some M&Ms. Lola says her favorite part about EHS is that “the students living in the building are all from different schools, which provides entry into another student's major and understanding of academic life. Because of this, it's very easy to network. The connections live all around us and there's an opportunity for them to blossom into long lasting friendships.” Lola recommends you spend more time outside than trapped indoors, weather permitting. If you ever get too hot or too cold, seek refuge in a store. Also, try not to limit yourself to one location in a day. Let the wind guide you!
