I realize attending a SA is unlike the 'traditional' 4 yr college experience. But still, these are 18-22 yr olds for the most part, that need/want to enjoy themselves at times. I'm not talking about Animal House type frat parties, but it seems like the entire plebe year, you are 'owned', other than X-mas break and perhaps Saturday afternoons. Other than that what other free time do you have? The traditional college student has the flexibility, outside of class and studying, to maybe go to the student union for a while; visit a buddy in another dorm room; head off campus for a bite to eat rather then eat the same cafetaria food; get together with the guys to watch NCAA March Madness; go away for a weekend to visit a buddy at another college or head home for a weekend, you know what I mean, etc. Even maybe even meet and begin a relationship with a new girlfriend. Do plebes and even upper classmen have ANY of these opportunities during there 4 years? It just seems that the "be here/be there obligations" are SO stifling. Does one just forget about actually having a girlfriend/boyfriend for 4 yrs? And what leave flexibility do you have during each of your 4 years?
