00:00:00.000 I grew up in and around Florence, South Carolina
00:00:04.551 and before I came to State I went to high school at the science and math school in South Carolina,
00:00:10.194 so it was kind of a neat transition. I had had two years of living sort of on my own at that point
00:00:16.935 so it made coming to college a little easier for me. So, yeah, South Carolina for me.
00:00:23.792 And like Will I'm a fellow out-of-stater,
00:00:27.605 spent three years here in my youth when my dad was in the Marines but I grew up mostly in Florida.
00:00:32.299 so from Palm Bay, Florida until I made Raleigh home.
00:00:35.821 I went to school there where an alumnus sort of ushered me into looking at North Carolina State University.
00:00:41.888 [It's a large student body. I mean working in student government here-. I think there's something like twenty-six thousand undergraduates.]
00:00:50.589 [I grew up in a very small town, smaller than that.]
00:00:53.254 Me too, I did too. I used to joke with the guy who was the mayor in the town I grew up in that more people elected me than elected him, which was true.
