    I don't enjoy it at all. Being a girl surrounded by guys is absolutely miserable. Don't underestimate the effect that has on your grades- or mental state.

    One of my professors told me that the Blue Angel's have a meeting every morning and before each flight... he said that before any one of the Blue Angel's talks that each one of them always say I am happy to be here, and I will fix it. Sometimes I wish the weekends did not seem so long because of my lack of ability to get anywhere off campus; however, this semester the weekends are not long enough... I cannot imagine myself being anywhere else. Did I mention that I love to fly? :]

    I love the vibe of the campus and it feels somewhat like a big university even though it is so small. Everyone is friends here and they stay that way. A very tight knit community.

    Daytona is a good area for school not to mention ERAU is conveniently located across the street from a Kmart, down the street from a Walmart, as well as next door to an airport. The beach is beautiful and a cool place to hang out.
