It was a very easy way to have a group of friends on a very large campus – a sense of identity. It was a great place to learn how to navigate a variety of personalities, which you kind of have to do in life. You’ve got the shy woman and you’ve got the obnoxious woman and you’ve got the brainiac and you’ve got the social climber and you’ve got the introvert and the extrovert, and you’re all living together. I think it gave me valuable experience in learning how to live with people that are different than you are. And that’s an important lesson. You can bet it comes in very handy in the Senate.
