    the social life is great because it's not just thriving, but inclusive too. most people go out thursday and/or saturday nights, when there are always lots of small parties in upperclass dorm rooms. some of these start as parties for a particular sports team and then open up to everyone else. in addition, some saturdays there are bigger dance parties sponsored by the school. the social life is active and inviting.

    Well, I visited there for a 3day weekend deal. I think I just ended up staying with the worst group of people.... my host didn't do much. She sort of showed us the beds and left. Then, that night, the group that I was with decided to go check out the parties with the heaviest drinking and i'm not a drinker, so that was a turn off. But the next night was far better. I checked out some of the clubs, enjoyed the party at the latino house. The dancing was in my blood! I then took a nice stroll through the campus with a friend and it was a gorgeous place. Sunday night was not as active because everyone was probaby tied away doing their homework I take it. So, that was my experience with the school. (Loved the classes on monday. Good sized classes...)

    Thank you Jeff & Cools. :)

    I'm sure, I'll think of many other things to ask later, just trying to do work here.
