My favorite experience at FAMU is my Vet Tech class. It is very interesting and educational. I've learned many things that will stick with me for the rest of my life. For instance, learning the different scientific names of animals such as; Rabbit is also known as lagomorph, cows are bovine, pigs are porcine, mouse murine etc. I've learned the reproduction system of farm animals and much more intriguing information. The asset that makes my school is the different students interacting with one another joining clubs, sororities, and fraternities. My school is a humongous melting pot, its just different personalities and attitudes intertwining together. I would choose my school again because I've learned so way more than I expected. I came in thinking I knew everything there was to know about animals when it reality I didn't and still don't know the half. So I'm going to continue to learn and strike, strike, and strike again!

My overall experience at Florida A&M University has been amazing. I enjoy the welcoming and family atmosphere, everyone is very close-knit. I also enjoy the fact that there is always something to do, such as extra-curricular activities and student involved activities such as seminars and debates. The difficulty of classes is what you make it, studying and being ahead of the game is always the best route to take. I like the fact that professors welcome students to come to their office if there is a question or comment about the course, so that way the course is student oriented too. I originally transferred from a previous college and I strongly stand by my decision of transferring. I love Florida A&M University!

A lot of people don't realize that there is much to do in Tallahassee. I live near Tennessee St., which is the main street of nothing but a plethora of food places. Of course there are other different types of stores like dollar stores and outlets as well. Since I became a college students I would definitely have to say that my favorite store is honestly the Dollar Tree because I never realized the true value of a dollar and how many cool things you could get for a dollar. Even when I become a millionaire I promise that the dollar tree will still be my favorite store to shop at. Aside from the amazing places of eatery, there are nice places to go to just take pictures or relax as well. One of the things that I do to clear my mind and renew it of all positive thoughts, is meditate. So whenever the weather is compliant Lake Ella is definitely one of my favorite places to go do so because being by the water is just so peaceful to me. I am also a nerd, most of the time if I am not home, you could definitely find me at Barnes and Noble, Coleman Library, or our Local Library. I have been to the most beautiful place ever for a photo shoot also called Maclay Gardens! Just full all different types and species of flowers unfathomable! I can't wait to go back because the things that I saw were just priceless. So I said all of this to say, that although Tallahassee is a college town and is expected to be boring, it really isn't, you just have to be an open minded person and broaden your horizon, use your creative mind by finding things to do and constantly feed your brain as I do!
