I 100% recommend it. I have heard so many stories from other students, not in a FIG, about how they feel like they don't know their neighbors, and are not connected as a floor. I feel like our floor is really great, and I know most everyone. Also, another plus, if you need help with your homework it is so nice to have basically a whole floor of people who can help you. So nice!!
I love the program. I met a ton of new people that have similar interests that I do, we also all have similar goals. It is also a good program, since everyone has some classes together and they are always there to help if you need it
In a FIG program you get to meet and have fun with people that have the same interests. You sometimes do floor activities with them and you automatically get a great group of friends that are there for school and not other things, they are serious.
