    I enjoy SU! Its a very comfortable environment, like home. There are special events like homecoming and the never ending parties, but if you're not comforable there are also more relaxing places like the library or the bluff.

    Try not to get too caught up in the parties. Stay focused on what's important. The scene is wonderful and there are a lot of interesting places on campus. There are also a lot of organizations to get involved in.
