Hostel life is a preparation to create a home away from home. It is where the life at a Gurukul starts, albeit a modern one. It is a balance between the training, rejuvenation & relaxation. The hostel is where students begin to have a sense of belongingness and camaraderie. It’s where the loneliness of life can best be dealt with and hostel makes one realize that true independence is the fountainhead to experiencing love and togetherness in life. On one hand, they begin to experience confidence and freedom to make their own choices and on the other hand, they begin to realize that they have an inherent ability to bring together a family away from family and inspire support in their lives.
Yes, you correctly read it. A life rooted in freedom, independent choice making, inspiring support from others, taking full responsibility of the past and be fully committed to the future, that is naturally a life of integrity, contribution, and creation. The hostel life at Echelon is designed to make this an experiential reality and train hostelers to lead such a life in future.
Every hostel is provided with a life coach and a mentor.
