Three friends take advan- tage of the warm weather to lounge around outside. People quickly realized that the warm weather would not last long, as the blistering winter came quickly to Michigan. photo by Michelle Sohn GRADUATES EXPLAIN WHAT IT WAS LIKE WHEN THEY HAD TO START ALL OVER AND -r MAKE NEW FRIENDS By the final few years of college, most University students had formed close bonds with a group of friends without whom their experience would have been entirely different. Despite the variety of events, clubs and restaurants unique to Ann Arbor, stu- dents agreed that without their friends those expe- riences would have been somewhat hollow. Senior cell and molecular biology major Sam Lahidji grew up in Irvine, California. The summer before his first year at the University his family moved to Ann Arbor, making it difficult to maintain his friendships from high school. " Thesummer after freshman year everyone left. I randomly made friends with one guy who had gone to Pioneer [High School], and he introduced me to his friends from high school. Before long we were all hanging out and I felt like they were my friends from high school, too. " Lahidji agreed that his college experience would have been very different without the group of friends he acquired. The college years were some of the most forma- tive in a person ' s life, a time during which they discovered things about themselves and changed from adolescents to adults. Caroline Gregory, se- nior organizational studies major mused, " The true friends that I have made throughout my four years at the University have helped me find out what I am truly about. I can now say that the saying ' you are who your friends are ' is very true, and that I am happy to have found such great friends that have helped me shape who I am and enabled me to be proud of what I will become. " Whether it blossomed out of shared hatred for a common class, a mutual dorm freshman year, main- tained from high school, convenient or lasting, friendship was a crucial factor in determining the experience a student had and memories they would take with them from the University.
