One of the most rewarding feelings during senior year is experiencing the moment when you find out about college acceptances. Being in high school is not easy..it can get more challenging as time passes, and it takes a lot of effort, time, and dedication.

During the time of waiting for a decision, you continuously question yourself, if everything you did for the past four years was enough,or if you should have done more. Luckily I got in on one of the colleges I wanted to attend.

I chose San Francisco State University because I have always wanted to live in a big city, San Francisco has an amazing campus, with easy transportation and a lot of places to go. When I first visited the campus, I saw that there is a lot of diversity from the food to the people; that is when I knew I was in the right place.

SFSU is very green, and there are many trees with squirrels running around. The atmosphere that you feel once you are there is very relaxing due to the ocean being closed by. There is a building called The Cesar Chavez building at the school, from the top of this building students have the opportunity to witness a beautiful view of the city.

The school offers many different majors, quality education with many resources for tutoring and studying, and an amazing study abroad program. One of my ultimate goals is to study abroad in Brazil or Spain by my third semester.

I am very excited to be an incoming gator at SFSU, I know that here, I will have the opportunity to meet new people, understand other cultures, and most importantly prepare myself to become an outstanding member of society.
