No, You stayed away. Hello, guys. Welcome back to my channel. Today's video is going to be another college video, and I think you guys have been loving my college video so far. I've got so much great feedback from all the ones that I've uploaded before. I met a link all of my past college videos down below if you want. Today's video is just going to be kind of explaining why I chose the school that I'm going thio I If you haven't seen my college revealed video, I'm going thio Florida State University actually leave in about three weeks to go start school. I'm doing the summer term, so I start very soon and I'm really excited. I'm really nervous, feeling a ton of different like emotions, but very excited. Um, so a lot of us have been asking, like, what kind of help me choose where I want to go and just like the factors, I guess that kind of help me decide. So today I'm going to be telling you all about why I was sort of state university. I have a list in my phone of like all of the things that I want to talk about about f s u. So let's just get right on into it. I have a list right here of like all of this world. I applied to it and like the ones I got accepted Thio telling you why I didn't decide to go with that. The first school that I got accepted to was the University of Alabama. And I loved the school so much. This is gonna be my backup school. So if I didn't get in F S u, I would have gone to the University of Alabama, which is mostly wide, and choose it just because I did get into F C, which was like my top schools over University of Alabama. But I went and I visited one of my best friends there in the fall, and I absolutely loved the campus. I loved the lifestyle. I made a lot of friends, and I got along with a lot of the girls that were there. It just seemed like a place that I would love to spend the next four years. And then I came home and a lot of my friends were like a joking on me like Obama girl and kept doing like Southern accents ends up like right? Like, why are we joking on me? I was kind of, like, upset. My friends are drug. Know me for wanting to go to the grace of Alabama. Didn't really care because I still really loved it. And it was such like a beautiful campus. And I just really could picture myself being a student there on my campus. Um, this is a school that I wasn't planning on flying too, until I saw the campus. So I saw the campus in November, and then I applied, like, literally the day after I got home from visiting my friend, and then I got accepted, like three days later because it's rolling admission. But I wasn't planning on flying there. And then when I did go there, I absolutely loved it. And I was like, Oh, my gosh, I could definitely see myself here, So I applied. And basically the reason I didn't choose this school is because I got in FSC, which was my first choice school. But it's an amazing school, and I almost ended up there, like, if I didn't get in, I would've gone there and yeah, it's an amazing tool. Beautiful campus beautiful like surrounding area. And overall, I loved the University of Alabama. The next four places that I got accepted to we're in Florida. First of all, the University of Florida. I got accepted to I kind of like I got accepted to the pace program there. Which is, um, you get accepted to go and get online student there for a year, However, until you have a certain amount of credit hours online. So basically, you moved to Gainesville and you live in Gainesville. I think you come like I think I could literally do it from my house here like I could do the first year and not even have to go to University of Florida. But whatever I got in for the space program and if if you f was like a dream school of mine, I would have done it. Like if I had gotten like, something similar to that for effort to you. I would have done it because it was such a dream school for me. But it just wasn't worth it to me to do all that to go to U. S. When I hated you. F I grew up being a seminal fan, so I would never go to you after the rival school. It's an amazing school. Don't get me wrong. Amazing academics. Amazing everything. But I would just like growing up a seminal I don't like stepping foot on the U. S. Territory, and I just have never liked campus at all. Like it's just not for me. I could see why some people like it, but it just doesn't I don't know. It doesn't really have anyone. I don't like it Also orange and blue. Not the best combo of them all. You know, my dad would definitely kill me if I want to you after because he is the biggest, seminal fan you'll ever meet. Also, the University of Tampa is one that I applied to and this is a private school. Once again, I wasn't planning on applying here. I literally applied. Just have another backup option because I was kind of getting nervous for its end of the application process, like, Oh, my gosh. What if I don't get into any of the schools I applied to just randomly applied to this one because I had, like, a 99% chance of getting in and I just really wanted another back of religious in case this is also a private school. So it's gonna be very expensive anyways, and I The campus is beautiful bubble of law, but they don't have, like, all the like sports and stuff like that also just really wanted to go to a public university. So it was never really like a place that I was gonna go. I just wanted a backup school. Interesting case, because that's always a good idea. To have next was the University of Central Florida or UCF, and for awhile I think I really talked about going to the school because a lot of my friends wanted to go. But I don't think I ever I really wanted to go. I think I was just convincing myself. I wanted to go because of my friends, and I don't want to leave my friends, but this is a very pretty campus. It's definitely a lot more of a modern campus, which is like I love modern stuff, but I think in a college I really love old timey, almost like the buildings at FX, your old brick and I love that. And then the buildings at UCF are kind of more just modern and like concrete and stuff. And it's like, definitely beautiful, but just like an honest, much my favorite thing, it's also very close to home. For me, it's it's two and 1/2 hours from home. We're just fine. I just want to be further, just not really for me. I guess they do have a lot of good things for my program, which is public relations and film. And they were really good film program also like Orlando's amazing area to be in. And I would love to go to school in, like a big city like that. But it just wasn't really for me, You see, after the ball was not for me, so I did not choose UCF. Lastly, it was Florida State University, which is where I am going. So I'm really kind of tell you why I chose that. Basically, I grew up being a seminal fan and you saw my college decision revealed when you know you would know that it is literally all I have lived and breathed for the past 18 years. My dad want tapas. You My grandpa went to FX. You like a lot of my family has gone off issue, and it's kind of just been like a thing of the Romano family loves the Seminoles. So I grew up going to games and grew up going to the campus. I've been to the campus so many times, have been probably like 15 or 20 FSC games. I think it's really cool that I've been to like, a lot of efforts. You games like around the country, like not just in Tallahassee, but I've been to a few in California have been to a few in Texas like went to one of Miami. I went to one in Gainesville like I go to them every year like, kind of follow them around and stuff. So it's been really fun to, like, grow up being a seminal fan for the past 18 years. And the colors are 10 times cuter than you, would you? She's blue and orange over guarding gold card. Ankle was adorable. Are you kidding me? So I love the color is that's one thing. Not that it's like the biggest factor in the world. But guarding gold are very cute together. No other campus that I visited like felt as at home to me as this one did. I think mostly because, like, I grew up going there. So in a way, it was a second home to me, like I go a few times in here. So I think I have a lot of memories from when I was a kid and stuff like that. Um, and it just felt like home still feels like home. And I don't even live there yet. So yeah, that stuff a huge thing. I want to feel at home when I'm in school. And I think I definitely feel at home there because I have so many memories there with my family. So it, in a way, like it's like home, I guess, in a way, like there wasn't really anything to choose because, like, I just like I have known great team years that it was, That was you. Like when I tried to tell, I tried to tell myself I wanted to go to California and New York and stuff which, of course, love to go to school there. But it was never really realistic because I could never get into the schools, and it's just way too expensive. So for say, it was just the best all around option. And I hate Florida, by the way, like I hate the state of Florida. But Tallahassee is like 30 minutes from Georgia, so it's literally the farthest you could be where, like you're in Florida. But like basically out of Florida, like we experience the Four Seasons in Tallahassee, the leaves change. Sometimes it snows. I think it's no this past season or maybe two years ago. You never really know until Lassie. So I'm very excited to ring you guys with me. I love you guys so much. Thank you for watching, and I will see you in Can you be this amazing food? This is Cass. Case far. It's my favorite spot in the city. Hi. It's partly by care and I'm gonna take you a walk on the trail to show you're out. Maybe you were my favorite favorite sport in the heart. Very picture and calm like Paul surrounded by palm trees. And that's why I sing off stare. Is the concert hall open like cruising? That's pretty cool here. Those. Slow by the stage and cool kind of our sister. Ah, really three old rooting, which used to be in factory for like forty years ago or something, and they have been recently reboot into you made a cool restaurant, said the process a little more on next six sides, but it's a really good ass atmosphere to be rotted by this amazing view. Right now I'm a ladder screen. One of the main open feel on campus. His holster love new event. And it's all I have information both about sure jobs and everything. And sometimes they have free food, so stick it out. So I'm on my way to see the information and what they have morning on campus right now. Here. And lining up. Yes, Terry. Sorry. Lucky. You. Crest there. That's that. Hey, everyone. I'm outside of da Campbell Stadium right now. Home to F s use football team. And right over here is our baseball stadium. F s u Athletics is a really big deal on campus, and everyone loves the Seminoles through and through. So you're gonna learn how to do the chop pretty soon. Unfortunately, I don't have footage of any of football games because it's spring semester. But I do have some of the basketball games. Check it up. Hey, everyone. I'm at twenty. Dining Hall, one of the largest dining halls located on FX campus. Help. You have several doing limited Teo like different sizes of meals. So I chose two hundred meals for the year when I had a meal in a freshman. It was perfect. I had more than a food. I had no complaints. You also get something probably flexed bucks or meal swipes, and you can use that. Other locations like Four Rivers even took for everybody's favorite. But money is really great. I've been here in a while. It looks very different from when I used to
