the dorms are AMAZING...this isn't opinion its fact: they're some of the best in the country. they've only recently been built, and are state of the art. worst case scenario: 2 to a spacious room who share a bathroom with only 2 other people in the next room, furnished with a microwave, freezer/refrigerator unit, and of course beds desks wardrobes etc. the president has raised $350 million dollars for new building, which has included the dorms, a new state of the art library and student center, apartments, and a center for the arts designed by i.m. pei who also designed the lourve (sp.?) in paris......as i said this guy is amazing.

omg you lucky thing!

That is some fine education you'll be having! Must be pretty expensive to go there!

What are you planning to study? Wait let me guess.....political sciences??

By the way it's Louvre

ah thanks for the spelling...i'm a german student so i know nothing of french

political science. another nice thing about the school is that even though the buildings are expanding they want to keep the student body between 5000-6,000 because they want the relationship between student and faculty to be a personal one.

lol no problemo!

That's good! Sounds like a nice little community. You're going to love your college more than your own home once you go!

I'd like to stay at the university that I'm going to but then there's no point since I can bus there in 30 min.

You know I'd absolutely love to do an exchang program to Europe when Im' in Uni! It'd be so fun!!

They emphasize studying abroad, and when your in the leadership program (which i am) they actually give you at least $1000 to do so!

not to mention with the presidents connections in washington i'll most likely get an internship on capitol hill

I think I'm starting to catch what April had. Pre-ticket buying stress sickness. I'm really nervous about the Prop sale since I have to wait to the afternoon to try...even though when I tested last Tuesday at that time I was fine. Not nervous about starting my new job on Monday....nope I'm spazzing about tickets.

well my parents have always kept me informed, because they themselves were always interested and involved. in 1996 election day also fell on my 10th birthday, so i decided to invite both friends my age and adults to watch the returns come in and celebrate my birthday. 2000 i would get into arguments more and more about the race, that was when i educated myself on primaries and found it fascinating. the more i learned the more i enjoyed it. i had also met gore and clinton (gore in '92 clinton in '96) so that was interesting too. so then i thought of it as a career, and then we moved here to richmond (i had previously lived in kentucky and tennessee). so now i'm close to DC and seeing the city for the first time absolutely catipulted my drive to live/work there.
