Q&A: Marine Biology Major – Andrea C (1:24)

Why College

I knew that I wanted to go to college because I wanted to grow up to be somebody, and I don’t know that means to you. It may be you want to be a teacher, you want to be a scientist. Whatever you want to be, going to college is going to make it a reality.

What I Love About College

The best thing about going to college is you meet a lot of different people that have the same career field that you want to go to, and they have the same goals that you have. It’s important to experience that.

Paying for College

FAFSA basically is financial aid where you’ll get to apply, and they will give you money to pay for your tuition, for book supplies. Basically, they give you as much as they give you to pay for your education.

Freshman Survival Tips

The thing that helped me the most was to look for resources – it doesn’t matter what it is – to always seek for information, to always ask for help. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. I think most of the people in your lives, your parents, your family members, anyone, don’t be afraid to ask for help.
