About The Book as described by the author

During my first year at UCLA, I often wondered if I had chosen the right school. To me, college meant having a big group of friends and finding the girl of my dreams. Much to my dismay, neither of these things was happening. Classes were too big, friends non-existent. The imposing institution was swallowing me whole. Because I lived at home and wasn't very outgoing, the odds were stacked against me. Sure, I met a few people here and there, but they were merely passing acquaintances. By June, I had made no inroads whatsoever and faced my sophomore year starting at square one. I felt like such a loser; I had missed out on a whole year of fun! My second year didn't start off any better. It was more of the same: 500-seat lecture halls, no group of friends, no relief in sight. I started spending more time on campus, figuring something had to break. Just when I was ready to give up, I ran into a guy I knew from high school. He seemed to be enjoying UCLA much more than I was. A few days later, he introduced me to some of his friends. Soon, I had some folks to hang out with. It was a bit awkward at first, but at least it was something. The new people were diverse and fun. They had known each other for a year already, but didn't mind welcoming me into the fold. Their regular meeting place was a popular outdoor community known as “North Campus.” Before long, it became my second home.
