Discuss your first lecture on campus and how that went.

I lived in a “Physics Cluster” in South Residence on campus my first year, meaning that everyone living in my section was majoring in physics or science. This gave me the opportunity to get to know some of my peers during Orientation Week before lectures started, so I was fortunate to be familiar with some classmates going into my first lecture.
