I had freedom! Freedom to choose a combo of majors/minors, to decide how involved I want to be in my activities, and to make campus as small as I wanted. At the time New Orleans seemed like a side perk, but now I consider the city integral to my time as a college student as honestly can't imagine being separated from it.
Snoballs on Plum Street, the three trees past the bridge in Audubon that are perfect for hammocking, anywhere the streetcar wants to take me, Superior Seafood, and my bed (my mattress pad is next level).
I went to Decadence the first weekend of my freshman year and it's still my favorite. (Close tie with Mac and Cheese fest and Beignet fest and Art for Art's Sake and BBQ fest... )
For neuro it would have to be Dr. V for Cell 1010 and Genetics because she pushes you to work hard and earn your grades and I still remember things from those classes from freshman year. My zoonotics prof Dr. Marx has the coolest life experiences; he identified new SIVs in West Africa that belong to HIV's genetic lineage and knows just about everyone that works in zoonotic diseases.
