Ave Maria University Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I wish I would have known about the weather. Florida has the most unforgiving weather but you get use to. Ave Maria is also a few miles away from the nearest city so I wish I would have known about the long drive to go out on weekends.

Nothing I am currently trying to attend
