2. There is only one kind of tea, and it's cold and very sweet.

7. The campuses are all gorgeous.

When you're surrounded by miles of green grass, beautiful historic buildings, and warm weather all year-round, doing your schoolwork outside is just what you do.

8. "Y'all" is a word — it doesn't matter what the dictionary (or anyone else, for that matter) says.
