Mike: It’s summer orientation and President Nemec was talking. I was talking to a bunch of new friends and then I looked over to my right and I saw this kid sitting by himself. I felt really bad for him and so I left the girls that I was talking to and went over and sat next to him and we started talking and that’s how we became friends.
