Description
A small situation of what happened at Playfair at my freshman orientation. Describes the brief conversation I had with Bob and the things that were mentioned.
Freshman Orientation was the first day i had officially spent at UCSD, so of course everything was influential to me of how I would view the school. First impressions, I had an immediate culture shock to see the minority groups to be the majority of the population at school. I would always remember the conversation I had with Bob because he had taken stereotypes out of a context I was used to before. Being in an new environment and using those generalizations resonated with me and how I would view myself to be.
