David was first diagnosed with schizophrenia when he was 26 years old. At that time he was in his fourth year as an architect student at the University of Oregon. David’s life prior to attending the university was not unusual. He had many high school friends, he was outgoing, and he was exceptionally bright. Any eccentricities in his behavior during these years were attributed to deep passion for everything he did, but particularly drawing. While in college, David began to withdraw socially, during his freshman year. He started college as an art major and he spent most of his time immersed in his drawings. At first his artwork earned him praise because of his obsession with detail, but later this fixation began to take over and he could never complete his assignments. He preferred spending time alone and would often be observed wandering aimlessly on campus failing to recognize or respond to those who knew him.
