Betty Torres, 16, talks to a friend while waiting to buy a Notre Dame shirt after class on Wednesday, June 29, 2016. This experience has been Torres's first extended period of time away from home. She says she likes to talk to her friends and family on the phone rather than text.
A native of Pharr, Texas, Torres spent a combined three weeks on the campuses of the University of Notre Dame and Brown University. Going into her senior year of high school, Torres is not sure where she wants to study, but she said she's interested in the neurosciences.
