    There are hundreds of activities and opportunities on campus to get involved. There are free bus trips into Baltimore or Washington DC several times through the school year, and opportunities for traveling to New York City. It's in a great location to do virtually whatever you enjoy.

    Living on campus is great, and it's given me, personally, a chance to establish myself as a person and what I believe. The dorms are fun because you'll meet tons of people you'll like, but there's always the people you're going to hate, namely the ones who like to party and trash the place.
