When I moved to Muenster (Germany) to study, I lived in a student college. At that time, residences for students were hard to find and not much information about various student colleges was accessible online. Due to my newly developed interest in HTML, I started building a website to meet this need.
I redeveloped the site in 2011 in Drupal 7 to make it easier to maintain, but I do not dedicate much of my time to this project anymore. It still receives a good amount of traffic though and the principals of the colleges keep reporting to me that many students find their residence due to this website.
