We have finally arrived here at Brown University. I can't explain how happy I am to be here in this magnificent institute. The dorms are very plain and run down, but what can you expect from an old university.
It was an experience going and meeting everyone. For the first time everyone around me wants to learn, or so I thought. It was interesting to hear the conversations that the other students had between themselves talking about their plans. Don't get me wrong, the majority of the students are intelligent and ready for their classes tomorrow but some are just her to meet girls/guys and have fun away from home.
I met my roommate along with her whole immediate family. Her parents and sisters were real nice and excited for not only their daughter, but also anyone else who was going to be in the program. Throughout the day this was the general mood. All the parents were here but I didn't have mine. I felt kind of left out and sad but I am just lucky to be here.
After meeting my roommate and getting settled we went to the orientation where we were told all of the rules and regulations. They then broke us up by our RA or residential director. I got to see where my class would be and where I would go to eat or study. I was less than surprised at the choice of food that we had. What was there looked good but I hope they change it up a little over the time that I am going to be depending on it for my food.
There are so many people here that I am not going to be able to meet all of them but I am sure going to try to. The campus is perfect with the little town feel and a great sense of community so even if I don't have them in my class I might be able to meet them at the book store.
