I love Gadsden State. I am in dual enrollment and everybody I have met is so wonderful and eager to help you. There are many different programs and I like that the campus is really close together and that it's not hard to find my classes. I have also switched my major 3 different times and my advisers have been so wonderful and are so glad to help with everything I need. I recommend Gadsden State for anyone looking for a smaller campus with incredible students and staff.

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

    the thing i most regret, is not jumping at my education sooner. i was always so sure i wouldn't be able to go to college because my parents were poor that i didnt bother to look into the facts. by the time i conviced myself that i was the only one that was going to make this happen, i had wasted closer to two years. i wish very much i had that time back, and with the knowledge i have now i could already be working as a Firefighter/Paramedic. After that, the thing for me to focus on would be self discipline. In those two years i was out of school i spent more than i should have spent if i wanted an education. with the thrift skills i was forced to learn and the help of scholarships, as well as fafsa, paying for tuition and books would become alot easier on my mind.
