“My donation is the least that I could do to show my appreciation for the staff, and the patience with which they have been serving us. I haven’t been back home ever since I came to Melbourne last year, and I found a second home at Graduate House. What I miss the most about my home is home-cooked meals, and I am so grateful to be provided meals here on time, and not have to worry about stepping out of my room at all. The excellent hospitality has really helped me focus on writing my thesis. Thankyou!”
