Where everybody knows your name...

Some people would find the close quarters a tad asphyxiating, but some people like being close to family. Real close. All the time. The closer the better. I mean, if your cousin had known you were going to take that abstract algebra class, he could have just held on to it and given it to you. Oh, what, he is a cheapskate who wouldn't have given it to you for free? OK, well, it still would have saved you the trip to the book store. Oh, he would have charged more than the bookstore, since he put all those great additional notes in the margins? OK, well, then it would be worth the extra money. Oh, his handwriting is incomprehensible? Um, well, at least you get to see your cousin! Oh, he is a pompous jerk who won't help you with your homework and won't stop bragging about his High School football exploits and how he was a Zone Leader on his mission? Kinda like a Mormon Cliff Clavin? Oh, well.

Yes, making new friends from complete unrelated strangers is hard, but its worth it! I married a completely unrelated stranger. Most people do! Its a good thing!

Most people go to college to get away from families.

I loved my experience at BYU because it was just like Timpview, but with Californians!

I couldn't think of anything productive to say on that post, so I'll be nasty here and get it out of my system. Sorry everyone. Of all the reasons I've seen to go to a particular college this is one of the strangest.
