The tuition back then was $400,that also included the general fee. the room and boards were $520, and the text book were about $35. the main differences of the colleges back then and now is that now they cost more like a lot, but the quality of the education is that it is better now. The mascot is the longhorns.

Stan's Apology letter

Dear Mr. Stroheim

I am sincerely sorry for my action, in that moment I was not thinking straight when I did that. I actually did what I did because I because I believe that guy did not do anything and because of my principles.

Mr. Stroheim I need the money right now because my dad just lost one of his jobs. My dad and I have to support my family which include 7 people. With the money that my father is making we will never make it.

I would really appreciate it if you take me back. I will be on time ,and do what ever I have to do. I will have more respect for my majors and most importantly, I will be the best employe you've ever had.

                                                                                                           Sincerely,

                                                                                                             Stan

Personal Review

I think Brighton beach memoirs is a really good book/play. I don't think the book has anything wrong it is totally worth reading / watching. My favorite part was when Stan comes back and gives the photo of the women with out clothing to Eugene, I like that part because of Eugene reaction. My favorite character would be Eugene because I can relate a lot to him.
