The transition to college can be a time of discovery (for everybody, including parents), so is anyone feeling like they have finally found "their people"?
This could have been at an admitted students weekend, in your new dorm, a class in a department that you've tried for the first time or simply a new circle of friends.
Don't be confused by the feeling you get for ivy-covered walls. This is about the people, not the architecture, the weather or the location. I'd also say that it's hard to realistically identify with an entire student body, so this is more about finding a smaller group of a hundred or less that seem to express the kinds of feelings you have.
