BBA - Accounting, Class of 1989

Back then, it was largely a party school, so it was a continuation of high school, with all the cliques and stupid narrow mindsets still in place. Not the enlightened environment I imagined it would be.

I liked that the dorms were suites with the bathroom shared by the two rooms. Choice of co-ed or all girls dorms. I don't remember if there were computer labs then...

Frats/Sororities were the most popular. Most unique were probably the bowling or badminton clubs.

There's a diverse campus life of sports, clubs, fraternities & sororities... It's been 20 years....I'm sure things have changed & evolved.
