1. If you had $10,000,000 to donate to Florida State University, where would you donate it and why? If given $10,000,000 to donate at Florida State I would donate money to the Florida State University C.A.R.E program and The Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC). Being a first-generation college student is very difficult. The problems stem way beyond not doing well in a class but not being able to afford to go to school and having family problems back home.

C.A.R.E made college a reality for me and to give back to a program that gives back to so many students within the university is, to me, what the Student Foundation is all about.
