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

Apart from strolling through the beautiful gardens and paths at Florida Southern, I love getting pizza from Palace Pizza. Their New York styled pizza is to die for. I highly recommend their garlic knots.

Why Florida Southern?

My favourite cousin had moved down to the Tampa area during college application season and told me to apply to a school down in Florida for fun. I searched "Florida" on the Common Application website and chose a random school. Florida Southern was the one I clicked on and it was the best decision of my life. I came down for Scholar's Weekend and fell in love with the campus. I particularly enjoy the small class sizes of no more than 35 people, more one on one interactions with my professors and the small knit community where everyone knows who I am :)

In my spare time I like to...

Binge watch Netflix or go to the Hollis Wellness Center
