Why did you choose to attend FSU?

FSU had a lot to offer between the city, sports and education. I also didn’t mind getting away from my hometown.

What do you like most about FSU?

I loved the campus and the types of people the University attracted. Also the size of campus being big but still easy to travel.

What do you like most about living in Tallahassee?

The nightlife is pretty good and there are a lot of opportunities for anyone’s special interest if you look around.

What do you like to do for fun/extracurricular/hobbies?

Checking out First Fridays in railroad square, attending shows at Club Down Under, going to FSU football games with friends and family. Outside of painting or creating thing in the sculpture lab, I like to brew beer when I can.

Do you have any advice for incoming freshman?

If you have a job during college, try to leave as much time as possible during your junior and senior year to focus on your major. Also, your GPA is pretty irrelevant to the real world.
