have there been any significant fights between guys over a girl? or complications at least?
have there been any cases of things getting pretty extreme when it comes to guys fighting over girls they are dating or have dated?
minor scholarships are easy but major scholarships, you are usually based on need or smartness and youve got to be very smart or very needy to get them
parking is horibleeeeee
walk or ride the bus, pleaasssseeee
Gym Is Great – The gym is awesome and a lot of people spend more time in the gym than in class because it is just that great
Nightlife is awesome. Tons of clubs and bars though some bars are 21+ transport is good as long as your'e going somewhere an FSU student might go. Parties depend on who you are partying with.
Just Keep Swimming – The program is good for starters and is pretty hands on but does require math reading, writing some science and good listening and people skills. The teachers do grade pretty rigorously and do not like to give A's, they really don't, no matter what you present but be persistent and don't fall behind and you will be fine. To get an a you need to be extra with your time, efforts and money.
The program is good but if you do not have the money for supplies you may find yourself in some trouble. allow at least a thousand a semester for supplies alone not including software and computers. I would not do a masters of architecture here though. I would honestly go to UF. excellent program for masters and its only 3 hrs away, why not?
Keep Your Students Close but Your Teachers Closer – I have never held an apprenticeship or an internship but they can be really good if you get to know the teacher well enough. I was once offered to type up a math proferssor's new mathbook in a program called LaTeX and he was paying $10 a page for a 300+ paged book and extra for research and input on various topics.
The female wrestling coach also significantly helps his wrestlers with their majors. He is also a chemistry teacher and can get you some good leverage for your science classes and will help you with chemistry. but only for those on the team. Worth a shot, if you're into that sort of thing.
Keep Your Head Above the Water and Free of Weights – Getting into the Architecture program is fairly easy if you are a good student but slackers beware, the program is designed to weed people out until you reach third year. It will get tougher and tougher to hang over time so be sure to accommodate for money for supplies (you will need a lot because the school doesn't supply you with anything but the wood and metal shop downstairs with very limited hours and a computer lab with old computers, though i hear they are getting new macs this summer), a really good laptop and a car because you will certainly need all these things. Otherwise things will get difficult. Follow the instructors carefully, keep track of dates and refrain from being lazy and you will be fine.
Just keep going through it and make the most of it for yourself. You will need to do independent research to get ahead of the others. The program is pretty well known and a lot of architects who are very good at what they do have graduated from this program but they made the most of everything in the program to get where they are at.
