What I Love Most About Stetson

As an international student, I was looking for a school that I could proudly call my home away from home, where I would feel safe and supported even thousands of miles away from my family. The first time I came to see campus I was greeted with the friendliest and most caring staff I have ever met and found everything I was looking for. Not only did they answered all the questions I didn’t even know I had but also reassured me and went above and beyond to make sure I felt comfortable. I have never felt more welcomed on a college campus as I did when I visited Stetson. That day I knew I found a place I will be able to call my home away from home, full of people that will always have my back.

My favorite place on campus is the balcony on the second floor of the library. I love to study there for my tests or do homework. It is surrounded by trees that provide a perfect shade from the hot Florida sun, a wonderful view to the palm court and a relaxing background sound of the running fountain water. When I’m studying on the balcony I’m in my happy place, it’s a perfect little corner for relaxing.
