    I love campus life! If you live in the dorms, the meals do get a little repetitive, but that is one of the few downsides. The Ave, which is right next to campus, has tons of great restaurants, and clothing stores that appeal to the college student on a budget. The campus itself is gorgeous, and the UPass gives you the freedom to explore all that Seattle has to offer. For me personally, it's never boring.

    The big city has been difficult to adjust to but I am really liking it. The campus is beautiful, the teachers are really friendly, and the campus is so diverse- I learn something new everyday! The Greek system is great and I've made a lot of great friends. I also really enjoy the classes in general and look forward to each new quarter!
