            Memories of UQThe campus was beautiful...I grabbed books from three of the libraries, enjoyed the green grass court, and had tons of fun at the extra curricular Halloween boat cruise; however, my favorite memory is eating at the patio cafe beside the main library because I was addicted to the Tuscan Chicken sandwich and creamy chocolate milk.
