What has been your favorite class?

My favorite class so far has been "Principles of Management." My teacher was a former manager at Lakeland Regional Hospital and that is the exact occupation I hope to have after graduating college. With that said, having that position means that she is a master of her field and I never had to doubt the accuracy and power of what she teaches. She inspired me to not only someday be an effective manager, but also to be a better person. This is just one of the many life-changing experiences I have had with professors at Florida Southern College.

Why Florida Southern?

My admissions counselor played a big role on my decision to choose FSC. From the moment I met her, she made me feel so special and treated me like family. She texted and called me frequently, which gave me comfort that I was going to have the same personal relationship with all faculty, staff, and students at Florida Southern College. Even being thousands of miles away from home, Florida Southern College has felt like home the first day I was there.

In my spare time I like to...

Spend time with family, watch movies and play any sport!

What is your favorite spot/thing to do in Lakeland?

My favorite activity in Lakeland is attending the farmers market downtown every Saturday morning. I love the food, music, and many vendors. I enjoy making stops to get caramel corn and fresh blueberries. They never disappoint!
