Even though I thought my middle school teachers and faculty were crazy about saying I should apply to Walter Payton (a school I didn't even know existed), 4 years later I couldn't be happier. The sheer amount of resources here is astonishing. The fact that teacher from my freshman year still remember me, or that I can pop into the office and have a conversation with Mr. Devine himself.
Over the years, there has been social tension slowly growing. Payton having a predominately liberal student body has shown itself in more ways than I thought it would. But besides that, the new friends of different cultures and college readiness I have gained there outweighs any cons.
Would I do it again? Is that even a real question? You bet I would.
