I find that after freshmen orientation they need to just let the students go, forcing us into events long after we are very busy is stressful

I choose this school because it was small and was the right choice for me

The school is small, but it is in a very boring area. I am getting a very challenging education, but I want to have the wild college experience. If I could choose again I would choose a college nearby, less expensive, but still clean and with technologies, while having time to study and have outrageous fun.
