Favorite question on a tour: Why did you like living on campus? Answer: The best part about being a freshman is that when you wake up every morning, you are practically already in your class. The layout of the campus puts you in an optimal position to be near all the academic buildings and centers of student life. The best yet is that when you wake up on game days, you are a short walk away from the stadium. Living on campus as a freshman means you are at the center of everything.
