    In the engineering department, we were very inclusive and very competitive. It was important that we learn to work together and almost everyone was friends with everyone else (for help with homework!) but we all wanted to be at the top of the class, so we worked hard and competed. We also had a lot of fun, especially during engineers week every year!

    Public computers were just starting to be used while I was in school. They were available in computer labs on campus and were very basic. Classrooms were large and open and cold-feeling. Dining hall was decent and offered various selections and nice seating area.

    dorms were nice but old, food was filling and plentiful although not exactly gourmet, plenty of lab and computer space. I rarely had to wait for space that I needed. A very nice rec center that many people took advantage of so it was pretty crowded most of the time.

    Back then, computer technology was limited to main frames and a few portals. They could only be accessed in the libraries. Nothing special about the rest, though they did start to offer healthier options in dining halls. Very different than now where students can eat slmost anywhere on campus.
