I was placed in Lawrence Residence for the duration of my stay. For the first few days I did the normal sight seeing around Chattanooga, and then school began. I got to choose my courses (5 electives and English was a requirement). I was placed in Junior year (our equivalent of Grade 11) which was strange as I was still in my final semester of Grade 10 back home, but I wasn't complaining because I got an extra 30 mins curfew on weekends. Each boarder is given a FABS family who is there to assist the student while they are there. Cat and her family were my FABS and they were awesome.

Due to the careful selection of my courses, I had very little homework, which was good because I spent every afternoon either at Walkabout or helping out with a local community. Walkabout is the most amazing 'sport' offered at Baylor. It consists of all outdoor activities: hiking, bouldering, rock climbing, kayaking and trail running. Through Walkabout I met so many new people and was lucky enough to partake in a Kayaking trip with a few of them. I was also allowed to go on First Years camp as

The common room of the dorm had this big red ball - needless to say it offered hours of fun
a leader (awesome!) which meant I got to do all the activities but got free time too.
