I was naive to think that this could have never happened at FSU and now my heart and prayers go to those injured and affected, having been an RA during my undergraduate years, we are certainly trained to deal with this type of event, but immediately forget how to (I speak mainly for myself) as well, you’d never actually expect it to happen.
Coming back for medical school here has been nothing short of an amazing experience. I love my alma mater and to be back to continue a life-long goal is electrifying every day.
Am I scared? No. I’ll walk across the street to the College of Medicine and attend the lecture that’s expected of me, because it’s what FSU expects of me, and I’ll be damned if I don’t meet the expectations of this great institution.
Our Greatest Hopes are that we can shake off our fears, and uphold the Garnet & Gold by displaying Vires, Artes, Mores — Strength, Skill and Character.
