I love being at school

One of my favorite memories was when my friends and I "borrowed" food trays from the Rat for makeshift sleds. . . good times!

The culture of the school itself is one of over-sensitivity, which is fueled by a few professors who force their ideologies on their students rather effectively by giving lower grades on assignments that reflect an argument for an opposing belief. For the most part, however, professors engage and promote discussion between students in an impartial manner. These professors are the ones who truly fuel the desire to learn in the college community.
