    Overall Experience: Burroughs is a special place. Is it hard? Absolutely. Is it extremely stressful? Absolutely. But the student body and the teachers all make it worth it. It is not a cutthroat environment and everyone truly wants everyone to succeed. The teachers are always there for you and many have become close friends of mine, which is not an uncommon experience.
