    Yes, campus is great. Everyday everybody seems to be in a great mood and always greeting you with a smile, there is also something going on on campus, whether if it is a fraternity or sorority activity or simple by other students organizations it always keeps the residents and students in general busy.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Not to say that the campus isn't beautiful or that there aren't some cool things to do or people to spend time with...but my heart is in Austin and I'm biding my time until next year when I transfer. I've grown up in the valley, so I'll be in the same environment, just in a different place in my life.
