    >Recitation… I had discussions instead. Section was the term for which version of the class you got into (the larger classes had several sections) and discussion was the term for the actual class you attend with your GSI (graduate student instructor). The cafeteria was called the DC (dining commons) and some people referred to their dorms as “units.” Then again, I went to school in California, so it’s a whole different world out there!
