    I had a lot of fun my freshmen year at college. Even when the school brought me up during the school year during my senior year at high school I could tell the environment was perfect for me. I had a great time getting to know people and experiencing completely different points of view from my own. The only issue I had was a fickle roommate situation, but now that I'm a sophomore that has sorted itself out.

    I absolutely love it here. There is so much to do; you really have to pick and choose your favorites. There are clubs that reach every interest, sports at division I, division 3, and intramural level, and in addition to that, many campus events that both educate and entertain. It's very easy to keep busy, but entirely in a good way. The food here is great, too.
