  • First time back here since I graduated in 2015. Sometimes all you need in life is a stroll down memory lane to tell you where you were, where you are now, how far you’ve come in the time in between. That experience, and a 401k with 5% match up to 5%, will get you far in life. Or it won’t. I have no idea. I’m 28 and I have no grasp on what the point of everything is. But I’m having a good time trying to figure everything out.
  • Beautiful landscaping around very clean buildings inside and out. Even the restrooms. Definitely covid-19 compliant. 95% of the kids I run across there are pretty down to earth and humble or at least seem to be by first impression. I do a lot of deliveries in that area and it's safe and clean but on the weekends during the semesters is not so much quiet but definitely alive. Helps this middle age guy I feel young.
