18:43@anonymous:Lane- as a liberal arts major, do you regret not going to a liberal arts school, or do you think a tech school provides just as many opportunities?
19:58@BrandonG:How are your professors? Do they answer fast? Do they entice you to learn more or are you more drained when you leave class?
