Oh dear, I seem to have caused some misconceptions. By 'here' I had not meant Smithmag, I had meant the college I have been going to for the past year.
Our university's values include: Integrity, Excellence, Accountability, Respect, and Service.
So I had been severely disappointed when I heard about some frat kids that had bullied my friends in my dorm's lobby. This did not happen to me, but it might as well have.
Thank you to DynamicDbytheC for showing such concern, and inadvertently making me realize my mistake. Everyone here has been nothing but kind to me. Thank you! :)
