September 1, 1984 – September 15, 1986
I originally started thinking about transferring to UC Davis for reasons that were anything but academic, or even rational.
Yet the more I learned about the school – and the International Relations program – the more I realized that I would be even more at home than I was at UC San Diego.
So I transferred, and though I literally wept the day I moved out of the dorms at UCSD (the place had grown on me more than I realized,) in retrospect it was the best move I could have made, and more than any other institution, it set me on the path I walk today.
I’m an Aggie, and I’m proud of it.
