am finishing my GMU first semester experience in a week.
This was truly the best 18 weeks of my
life. It might be because I am not from
the largest county or the best place in the world
but GMU manages to balance everything I want. Yea,
Gen Eds are boring and some of my music classes
are really challenging and some of the teachers make you
feel like a piece of crap, but it all is
like the real world. Yes things will be easy,
some hard, and people are going to talk down to
you. Yes it does rain alot here, but it's
been a rainy year. Sometimes this college isn't right
for people, but for me it definitely was. The
cops here are really strict in the Park (freshman housing)
and I found that out first hand getting a judicial.
But the whole system was a joke after that...they
threaten bad things but then all you have to do
is attend a course or make a bulliten board.
Things here in the social aspect are pretty awesome.
You can go clubbing, partying, out to the movies, and
shopping. There is so much to do on the
weekends. And yes, alot of people don't like the
fact that on the weekends there is like nobody
here...but i freaken love that. You don't have to
wait in lines...you can go and study somewhere without a
million people being there too. Honestly I love it!
That's all I can think of but it really has
been an amazing experience.
|Do you feel that as a music major, you're getting a solid foundation? I want to major in music performance but I know nothing about the quality of GMU's music program. Elaborate?|
