Describe the students at your school.
Being in New Orleans, you might think there would be a fair amount of diversity on campus. Not true. The majority of the population are rich white kids from California, Florida, or New York. I am here on a significant scholarship, and I come from a family of lower socio-economic status. I enjoy reading, watching movies, trying new restaurants, and going out dancing at clubs occasionally. I feel VERY out of place here. I cannot keep up with the alcohol-based social life here- I can't afford it, and I'm not interested in it. To sum it up, one of the girls on my floor was telling her roommate that Obama was coming to speak here, and she said "Aren't they looking for him?! Does the president know about this?!"
