Too much Biology! You people have to have something weird going on in your heads...

Anyways, I'm going to Valparaiso University for Engineering, with a Chemistry minor.

I agree- it's stunning. I have my housing (Donlon Hall- it's shaped like underwear! :lol: ).

Ewww, biology! :(

I wonder if there is ever a serious SOian who goes to college and majors in something not in the math/sciences. I know I'm sure not... although that's about as narrowed as my focus gets right now. I have no idea what I'm going to do yet..

I keep hearing amazing things about the Cornell campus, but I've never been there. But Stanford is the best campus I've ever seen, by a longshot. It's godly.

Isn't Kate doing English?

Stop by Cornell while you're out there. Imagine if half of IU was made up of brand new residence halls with big, green quads and waterfalls.
