Personal comments
For domestic students International students are a real threat as we increase the average grades that's why it's very difficult to get to know them better. I think the American grading system should be changed.

Personal comments
6th street although highly recommended by former exchange students was very disappointing. I would suggest to go on Fraternity parties on West Campus. At the beginning of the semester as they want to reruit new members they are free even for male students. During the semster they are closed for male students if they are not a member of the fraternity but they are all the time open and free for girls.
