Winter Semester Begins at Local Colleges

The campus of Florida State was bustling as students headed back and forth to class.

Florida A&M, Tallahassee Community College, Valdosta State University, and Thomas University were all back in session Monday.

Many students we talked to say it's good to be back.

Abby Crane, an FSU freshman, says, "I'm loving it. So far it's just been fun seeing my friends again and trying to get back into schedules and that stuff again."

Sarah Lawrence, another FSU freshman, adds, "I miss my family, but I definitely miss staying in the dorm with all my friends."

Traditionally, local businesses and restaurants are happy to see the students back in town because their sales go up.
