When I decided to attend FSU, I was excited to start college. However, after I attended orientation, I felt nothing but anxiety because of all the ideas I heard about FSU. I was never a big party goer, so the fact that this school was known as a party school made me nervous. However, when I met people who were going to attend FSU, I got even more anxious because of how immature they sounded and how artificial they sounded to me.

The school is so open and diverse. I would choose this school again if i had the chance. It has given me fantastic opportunities and I've made new friends and reconnect with old ones. The classes allow me to broaden my horizons and perform to the best of my ability.
