Ryan Amann 12/1/11 Final Check In I’ve had a great and enlightening time so far at the University of Maryland. I have in no way been overwhelmed by work and I take pride in that.

This is the small bit of adversity I’ve had to go through, and quite frankly, I don’t mind about my grades quite as much as my parents do.
