    There were 3 computers on campus.....the dorms were rather old, but I believe they have almost all been replaced by now. Classrooms were old and not well lit. The dining halls had an awful insect infestation problem at the time. Again, it has all probably changed.

    I went to the College of Agriculture and the farm facilities were state of the art. The riding and polo teams were always some of the most popular to be a part of. There were so many different activities in the other Colleges on campus that I was only aware of peripherally. Overall, this was a great place to be.
