Eh, parts of Durham are terrible. And when George's Garage and Shooter's are the best bars in town, you know you're in hell. I will admit, though, that Cosmic is the best on-campus food I've ever had, so that's one redeeming thing about Duke. Actually, the bar scene in Palo Alto is way worse than Durham, because in Palo Alto it's essentially nonexistent, but at least you've got San Francisco nearby, and Palo Alto weather >>>>> Durham weather. Ann Arbor is a HUGE college town, so it's by nature better than Durham. And the girls in Charlottesville? Well, I'll just leave it at that.

Well yes, in fact, I am from "the north." Unlike most "northerners," though, I don't have an innate hatred for SoCal. But people up here do say "Cali," and when we make fun of my friends from Fresno, we do call it "Fresyes." So I don't know what to tell you.
