"Living in a house off-campus with friends, playing on the soccer team, attending Lighthouse gatherings and being part of a small group." - Julie Louis '01

"Hiking and ski trips with friends." - Paul Allen '01

"Several musicians lived on the same floor my freshman year and put together an improvised jam session. By happenstance several friends all ended up on the same floor in our Junior year, so we just left the door open and people were always coming by to hang out. Watching movies for a film class late at night in the library. Just hanging out on the lawn on those beautiful days before the end of the school year." - Andy Smith '01
