I've only been attending this school for one semester, but i have learned a lot. It is a large school and takes time getting used to. Some buildings connect to others, such as Kirksey Old Main and E.W. Midgett. The school is proud of itself, its background and its horseshoe in the courtyard. The Keathley University Center is the best place to grab some chow. Starbucks, Subway and Pizza Hut, to name a few, have made their home here. The student union building is holds our arcade, bookstore and office help. We need more red buses. Be sure to get on the RIGHT bus or you might end up in the parking lot!
