“I’m currently studying pre-engineering at Gadsden State. Gadsden State is a quiet place to study, and the people that I have met are very nice and friendly. One of my long-term goals is to continue my education to earn a master’s degree in the field of new technologies of information and later get a PhD,”
“So far my freshman year at Gadsden State has been great. I have made many life-long friends, especially with the international students.”
