Alicia Wilson and Ty Paslay hang out at what they call the "stoop" outside Helser Hall, a place where fellow art-and-design majors and smokers congregate all day, rain or shine. Alicia never dressed like the other kids back home. “When I came here, I found people who wore the same stuff," she says, "people who think it’s cool when you get a new piercing.”
