Once I entered the campus, the feeling of anxiety and fear cleared it's way for the sense at ease and pride. Seeing and feeling how welcoming the environment and people were around me made me realize that I was already at home. There is no college that can out run this feeling in my chest, the feeling of ARGO PRIDE.
I mostly enjoyed the small sense of community I felt during my time at UWF, whether it was in the classroom or amongst fellow Greeks, I always felt as though I was surrounded by close friends. It is so nice to find a home away from home!
