My favorite memory at Florida Southern College was during my first Farewell Festival. To be surrounded by so much fun and excitement made me stop and think about the moment and how bittersweet it would be to go home for the summer. Although I desperately missed my family, at that moment and time I realized how blessed I was to have something that made saying goodbye so hard.
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.
At Florida Southern College I am a Southern Ambassador, a Residential Advisor, a member of Women’s Advocacy, a member of the Mental Health Club, an active member at our campus chapel, and a member of the Women’s Track team. Back home, I am involved in campus ministries at my local church, a Market Partner for Monat Global, and the Founder of Hidden Hearts of Hope.
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.
