Most Memorable College Experience:

Best advice you received regarding college or would give someone else entering college:
Location, location, location! I always advise anyone to think about how well they like the city and community where they will be living for a significant portion of their life. How do you like the culture? The people? If you could see yourself investing a few years of your life there, it's definitely a good spot to be in.
