"It's a wonderful school!"
"Its relatively close to home." (that was my mom)
"You get to be a part of something greater than yourself."
"You'll make some of the most incredible memories in your life."
and "There are so many things to get involved in."
Not one of the wonderful people I discussed coming to college here mentioned College Station's tendency towards insane weather. And i don't mean the kind of insane like "My friend is so crazy." No this weather is along the lines of "We the jury find..." crazy. On Sunday our high was around 80 degrees. Monday it was 64. Tuesday it was 27. Yesterday it was 28. And today the high was a whopping 31 degrees. On top of a wind that feels generally angry with you. So things are very cold, for Texas anyway. Thankfully the cold weather does nothing to diminish the Aggie Spirit.
