The University of New Orleans has been a place of personal growth for me in many ways. Not only has it created a safe environment for me to pursue my academic goals and interests, but it's become a place that I will cherish for days to come. As I graduate high school, I had no direction, no idea what to do with myself, etc. I joined the military right after and unfortunately it did not work out. I came home from book camp smack dab in the middle of what would have been my freshman first semester. Immediately, I jumped into the spring semester as my freshman first semester and was met with overwhelming support and help from not only the staff at UNO, but the students and the facilities they offered. UNO was a place where I found my path and a place where I found myself emotionally, mentally, and physically. I would always tell people that if they don't know what they want to do, just take the first step and the things around you will begin to fall in place. Your path will expose itself to you through time and confidence. Just believe and have hope.

I love uno campus its really great. The teachers are absolutely tremendous they help with everything and they also understand if you are going through some thing. You make really good friends with classmates online. Only because of the pandemic we can’t be more social but other than that everything is totally fine.
