Why to go to college out of state
Growing up in Florida I always thought that I would go to the University of Florida. I was a gators fan and I loved everything about Gainesville.
After I entered high school and had to go on college tours I was introduced to so many different university’s. Most of them in Florida.
It wasn’t until I met a boy (my now husband) that I was introduced to the thought of going to school out of state.
Here are a few reasons to go to school out of state.
1.You can create a new image
Say that in high school you hated the way you acted or dressed. Going to a new place and getting to be yourself is so refreshing. No one knows your embarrassing past. You get to be exactly who you are without stress.
2.You get to meet new people
In high school and even before that you were probably surrounded by people that you have been going to school with your whole life. Meeting new people grows you as a person. Going to college out of state helps introduce you to people and culture you would have never learned about.
Growing up In Florida I didn’t see leaves change, I didn’t see flowers bloom and I surely did not see snow. Moving out of state for college gives you a chance to temporarily see seasons and surroundings completely different than you normally would.
When you go to college out of state you will be introduced to all new grocery stores, parks, restaurants, and malls. It’s like going on vacation in your new home every weekend.
5.A new look on life
Throwing yourself into college out of state gives you a new look on life. You will grow so much as a person. The world will never look the same. You will understand everything with a whole new perspective.
If you haven’t looked into going to school out of state, or studying abroad I recommend you do. It has changed my life for the best. I am stronger, more independent & happier than I ever thought possible.
