Student Voices: Joshua, RICE University student-admin Uncategorized July 11, 2016October 13, 2016 I think what surprised me here most was the people. I mean, the sheer diversity of them. You know, you easily forget that there are people from different countries growing up in cultures completely unlike your own. It’s easy to think that the people and experiences you grow up with around you is most of what life has to offer. But being at Jacobs you remember that wow, there’s people my age from places I’ll never travel to nor come to appreciate who have the same interests, passion, fears, and goals that I have in trying to make it through life.
