It was a very easy way to have a group of friends on a very large campus – a sense of identity. It was a great place to learn how to navigate a variety of personalities, which you kind of have to do in life. You’ve got the shy woman and you’ve got the obnoxious woman and you’ve got the brainiac and you’ve got the social climber and you’ve got the introvert and the extrovert, and you’re all living together.
