I love everything my college have to provide as far as classes, organizations and campaign season. My school taught me about myself and allow me to step out my comfort zone and explore new challenges. My school gave me the courage to run for political positions and even start my own organization on campus. Delaware State give you a voice and help start your career early. My school encourage students to uplift each other. The organizations on campus allows students to be who they are and to also meet new people and feed off each other energy. Delaware State also encourage students to dress professional on certain days. This gives students a chance to prepare for their careers. If I was given an chance to choose a different school, I would not take it.

College Fun! Since Delaware State has a no tolerance rule for alcohol and drugs the closest bar is not at a convenient driving distance. That way student do not feel the need to go out to bars and drink. The clubs are not exactly close, but sometimes they have buses to take students to clubs for the night and then they will later on come pick them up. Inside the clubs are mostly college students, we can tell if someone does not go to our school by simply looking at them because Delaware is very small. Underage nightlife is fun, they can go to parties on campus and still have a good time. I believe that partying on campus is better than going off campus because then you do not have to depend on a bus or friend who is not ready to leave yet.

I've made life long friends and am enjoying college life! College is what you make it. Since my school is on the east coast, we get people from New Jersey, New York, Baltimore, DC, Virginia, and each place brings something different to campus.
