Re: [efiwebheads] From Sue
- Hi Sue,
Thanks for your mail. Houston is where I was born and where I grew up. I also
attended the University of Houston, which was good for biology, which I
As to what college you should attend, that depends a lot on what your field
is. I'm sure U of H surpasses TAMU in some areas, but TAMU specifically
excells in agricultural and mechanical fields, and probably many others. It
would certainly be a mistake to change schools just because you were enamored
of the city (enamored means you were impressed at first, but you didn't see it
deeply). Houston has a lot of traffic and if you don't live in the right place,
more crime. I think College Station would be a more comfortable place to live,
and you seem to like the school.
I've put your writing at your webheads page:
As I always do when I post student writing to their web pages, I made some
corrections, and if you're interested you can look at what you wrote and
compare it with what you see on that page, and maybe improve your writing.
There's an update on Sue's problem with discrimination that you can link to
from the bottom of her page.
