Everything is great. The professors would help the students get internships so they can get a good feel of the field they are in! Everyone has to earn a position in everything. I agree that if a person works hard enough, then that person should be rewarded and the staff agree with this rule. The quality of employers recruiting on campus is a great one in my opinion. The services on campus are outstanding. They offer tutors to those who need extra help! There are a few great places on campus to study. The staff/faculty are very friendly and they do their very best. There are great services there. The food is not that bad. There's a mailroom. The campus police would give any service. Overall, the quality of the school is a good one and I would recommend anybody to enroll at Anna Maria.

I finished my first year of college and have gone through so much. I made a lot of friends. Some of them are very understanding and like to be there for me. However, some are not. Some students are less social and make unnecessary comments that could hurt a person's feelings. There's always going to be some type of drama in any place a person would go. During college, I realized that certain opinions shouldn't matter and get in the way of my destination. There are so many great students, professors and staff there. My college is a small community and the relationships among people are closer than any other college. In a way you could say we're just one family. I say that because we all know each other and there's no problem of saying hi. I got a great feel on how the school work is like too. I knew before my freshman year that there was going to be a lot of work, studying and essays to do. I put aside my fear, and done it. I've written so many essays and I've studied so hard throughout one year. I stayed up late to the point where I had to force myself to stay up. I know I'm not the only one. My biggest problem, as well as others, is that I procrastinate. I have to manage my time appropriately which I will next semester because I know how it's like. I was tired all the time and I didn't get enough sleep most of the time. I managed to get every work done on time though but it was through the hard way. The essays didn't help, especially the 4+ pages. I'm already a slow essay writer. I take my time and look over so many times to make sure it doesn't sound bad. It's honestly not that bad if you really set your mind to it. What gets me going is the support I receive from the community and playing soccer. I experienced playing college soccer and it's so much different from High School but I was preparing for it. I knew there was going to be a lot more running and focus. I've grown to love soccer and after playing, I love it even more. It's great and safe place to go!

Usually, you would see people in their own groups. It's usually the same people hanging out with each other! The school had diversity week so everyone could come together. However, not many people attended! We all are our own person with different backgrounds, beliefs, views, and religions. The students are friendly to others. We pretty much do our own things.
