Guest Blog (2) by my #1 Grandson 大外孙子的客串博文  -- 我的大外孙子, Daniel, 二十岁了是 Drexel University 的二年级本科生. 他在美国出生长大同我相隔二代,思想与我全部不同,也不会同中国青年一样. 所以我请他客串写一篇博文,讲一讲他对大学生活的看法. 这是他第二篇博文. ( I shall also be happy to transmit any comment and question Chinese youth may have for him.)

In the first article, http://www.sciencenet.cn/m/user_content.aspx?id=246191 I talked mainly about the college application process and what factors go into determining a college for an American student. In this one, I shall go more in depth on actual college life, for example, what students do there in their free time.
            I go to Drexel, which is a University in Philadelphia, so I will mainly cite things from the urban lifestyle. In the city there are always things to do in your free time. It’s usually cheaper to walk places then take a cab or train, so I take the time to walk to wherever I want to go. There are many good places to get food in Philadelphia, one of my favorites is a restaurant called 5 Guys Burgers and Fries. To this day I have not found a place that makes better burgers they do.
            In the city there are many museums and art galleries to go to. Many of them have student discounts so it works in my favor. There is also the world famous Philadelphia Zoo which is one of the top zoos in America. Being an urban school, Drexel does not have much natural scenery, however, there are many places for people to go biking.
            As for nightlife, people usually party at the fraternity houses or go out to some of the bars around campus. As I mentioned before, bars usually look the other way when it comes to drinking, as long as you don’t look too young.
            In the end, it really depends on what you like to do. I know not all people enjoy museums and art galleries, it just happens to be something I like. There is also a mall in center city which I visit quite often on the weekends.
