Advice From Graduates

Always connect and network with the people you meet. Learn from your mistakes and any experiences that may not seem fun. You can grow by learning what works for you and what doesn’t.

Get involved in clubs. Your major is important, but being well rounded is crucial as well. It sounds easier said than done, but that’s what college is for: trying something new!

FSU taught me how to network, and that was critical. Going to a large, social school allowed me to meet a lot of incredible people. I use those skills to network to this day. People have a natural tendency to help each other. You need to meet as many people as possible, pay it forward, and it will pay back. A nerd who can network is an unstoppable combination. Go Noles!

Make the most of your time here at FSU. There are so many opportunities for you to get involved both on and off campus, beyond the classroom. Take advantage of them. We are students first, and we’re all here to get our degrees, but your Seminole experience will be so much richer if you get out there and get involved as well. It may just change your life.
