Figuring out your future is very overwhelming. Especially right after high school, because we are too young to know what we want to do with the rest of our lives.

For me, going to college is a time to help me mature, give me responsibilities and learn how to figure things out on my own for once. Plattsburgh feels like home to me. Corny enough to say, it just “feels right”. The atmosphere is comforting, everyone is friendly and accepting.

also perfect for me at Plattsburgh because there is an excellent new education program that I looked into when coming to school. I ended up getting accepted into it, and am still very excited about it. Plattsburgh has a lot to offer that I am interested in. Going on the tour for the school and just walking around and feeling like I was part of the college for a couple hours that day, I was able to picture myself there. The class sizes are perfect for me. I feel like for my education classes since they are for my major, they are small and concentrated. On the other hand, some of my general education classes have around 45 students in them. I don’t feel it is as important to have a small and concentrated class sizes when it is
