Good luck and never silence yourself.

Stephens is the best dorm and be nice to the dining staff.

They definitely taught a lot of self discipline and forced me to take care of my body even off season. To regularly stretch and eat healthily in preparation for a tough workout or just to take care of this body that I have.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Starbucks is near but everything else is pretty expensive.

Its a big enough school to not feel obligated to have toxic relationships with people who are not healthy for you.
