Rene

For those students who are choosing to go back to school to earn a degree, Florida State College at Jacksonville is a wonderful institution. However, if you are a recent high school graduate looking for "college life" you have found the wrong place. Although, that is to be expected of a community college. The professors are not terrible and it is possible to make friends and have a social life. However, it is not what I wanted in a college.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    The world is not the fuzzy, friendly place you always imagined it to be. The sun will rise on any day with or without you, humaity, or the small worries and problems you have. It's bigger then your mind comprehends right now, more brutal, efficient, and beautiful. Don't wince and close your eyes off to what is happening to the world. There is a price that you as a person must pay. The price of being an American is paid in the use of depleted uranium, the generation of global warming. You will hurt many people and not notice it. Through indifference, apathy, and neglect. Your pride will get in the way of you doing anything about it. You want to help people but all you do is make them comfortable. Comfort only allows them to remain who they are. You help them feel alright about themselves and not want to grow or change. Stagnating their potential. Much is ahead of you if you want to change that, pain, crying, fear. It is not easy. If you make it through, if you can think and reflect on it. You'll see it's beautiful. The world is beautiful.

  4. What's unique about your campus?

    The best thing about my school would have to be that it is open to whoever wants to finish or start their college quest. We all know big universities are very picky on to whom they choose and you need near perfect scores to even be consider into those universities. Not at FCCJ, they allow anybody to come and grow academics wise. I think that would have to be the best thing about my school.

  6. What kind of person should attend this school?

    Florida Community College, now Florida State College, is great for anybody who wants a smaller school atmosphere. Since it used to be a community college, it is still small so it's perfect for people who aren't quite ready for a big university upon graduating high school. People that attend FSCJ should be hard working and willing to earn their grades because it sets the foundation for future courses and the degree they are pursuing.

  8. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The worst thing I would have to say it doesn't really feel like a college environment to me. The main reason why is because there is no activities going on around the campus like other schools. I guess I feel this way because I transfered from a university in Iowa where I lived on campus and got the full college experience. Living on campus, going to sports activities, etc.. All it really is to go to class and then head home. That s the worst thing about my school.
