I'm still getting used to being at the school I don't go out much , but when I do the events aren't what I expect and I mean that in a negative way. Either that or a lot of people don't support it. With those being the negatives there are some things I do love about the school. I love that the campus is calm and peaceful , I love my dorm room , and some of the great people I meet.

There are favorites, but as long as you keep asking questions and making sure to get every bit of knowledge you can, you'll do fine, regardless of what successes you achieve in school. The best people who are making real stuff out there are not the ones who succeeded in our department.
