Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!


I am going to be completely honest with this one; the food choices. I have never been given the chance (being a freshman) to have the choice to eat whatever I want, and have whatever I am in the mood for. Even though I plan to transfer schools (due to a field of study change) I know for a fact that I will miss the food. The other thing that makes it unique is the 24 hour library, and the chance to have tutors help you out whenever you want! Definitely gives you the chance to succeed!
