We arrived in College Station this afternoon. DD's tour isn't scheduled until tomorrow, but I was eager to see the campus as I haven't been here since graduating a little over 20 years ago. We've lived in other states since then and have never had the opportunity to come back. I knew it had grown and changed a lot and was prepared for that. I have been telling dd that even though it's a huge campus and student body, it doesn't feel that big because everyone is so friendly; they look you in the eye, smile and say "Hi" or "Howdy". We walked all around campus and only 3 or 4 students smiled and/or said hi. I looked at them and smiled. Except for those 3 or 4 students, we were met by blank stares, if they looked at us at all. It was such a let-down, and I really felt sad. What happened to the friendliness? We're going on the tours tomorrow, but I can tell TAMU has already made a negative impression on dd. What a shame.
