turtles-own [
  dict
education? ;; education personality variable that is able to be manipulated.
sex ;; to designate male and female interactions and procedures.
year ;; variable to give turtle respective weight depending on what year of school they are in. the younger a turtle, the more susceptible as a perpetrator and victim.
year-weight ;; 1,2,3,4 correlating with the years of undergraduate for purpose as mentioned above
personality ;; implemented to give turtle university student like personality in terms of preferences and where to interact.
personality-var ;; allows the turtle to move intelligbly whilst being random due to the desire to fulfill a personal longing.
;;For example, if a turtle who likes to go to the fraternity a lot does not for a while, he will want to go and fulfill his desire. Enhances randomness and simulates student mindsets.

links-own [
 no-of-interactions-girl
