It was a good fit because I went to a local school - not too far from home and a state school - a little less expensive. It was a good transition from high school to a more independent life/living situation. I found I could draw many parallels from a basic psychology education to the real world and many different industries and jobs. My first job out of college was in Human Resources and it definitely helped me get hired. Use college as a jumping off point in your life. It can transform you - unless you are driven to a specific career - get a broad education and take advantage of as many learning experiences as you can - travel abroad - self - study - internships, etc.
I absolutely loved my college experience! It was somewhere where I didn't know anyone and could completely be who I wanted. The social experience was great and the degree path was great! I certainly would Go where you feel right
Florida State offers a great abundance of information and people to talk to and it is also easy to find. Things like sensation week you can take tours around the school learning where things like the career center and gym are located or clubs to join and activities to do, which is great for assimilating incoming freshmen to the school. Florida state is a great school with many opportunities for all types of people !
I am currently sophomore at the Florida State University and I am a psychology major on the Pre-Med track. Florida State is a great place to live and study with a stunning campus that has places to lounge around and nap and an extracurricular life that can have you busy every day of the week if wanted. The coursework for the school differs major by major but if you are in the field of study that you truly want to be in then you'll find that it is worth all the time and energy.
Each major has multiple advisers that are there to help you with anything from time management to discussing the merits of taking one class over another to helping you map out your schedule for the upcoming semester. You will also find a lot of students who are more then willing to sit with you while you talk out what you want to with your academic career. At this school, and I am sure many others, the internet is your best friend. Both campus libraries (Dirac and Strozier) along with other buildings have computer labs that are open to students with programs ranging from simply Microsoft Office to Photoshop and other more advance options. You also can search the library's book catalog from the comfort of your own dorm enabling you to see if either of the libraries have the book(s) you need or if they need to get the book specially for you.
The most important lesson about college is to realize that academics are not the entire world, you also need to have free-time. It is really easy to strike up a conversation with a classmate or just a random stranger walking down the street honestly. Most everyone here is warm and friendly and always willing to share a joke and a smile. Same goes with the professors. Talk to them, visit during their office hours and ask questions in class. When you actively engage with them then they will be more enthused about the lesson and even a boring subject can be made entertaining.
Honestly you are the only one who knows what school is right for you. When you walk across Landis and see other students running around playing ultimate Frisbee or lounging around with other friends and pets, or when you go to see a midnight movie at the SLC and everyone is dressed up for the Avengers, or even if you are simply sitting in your dorm and you look at the window and cannot help but smile a little, then this is the place for you. There is no greater feeling then being a 'Nole!
