Did you live on campus?  no

Did you know anyone at your school freshman year?  Yes. Easily a dozen people. And to this day, I’m still close with several

Favorite dining hall meal or favorite go-to meal:  Cheeseburger and fries from Educated Burger or potato skins from Fitzwilly’s. Sadly these New Haven joints are long gone.  And Cornwall’s in Boston

What’s one thing you wish someone had told you during your first year?  Relax. Pay attention to what’s important. If you hit a rough patch, push through.  That experience doesn’t define you. The year will go by in the blink of an eye
