Alumnus at Florida Southern College
Class of 2019
Current: Cape Coral, FL
I chose Florida Southern because I fell in love with its warm community during my first visit as a junior in high school. I was welcomed with opened arms by everyone I met and I truly felt at home. I love how strong the academics are, how personable the staff is, and how easy it is to get involved. I knew that I could make Florida Southern my home for the next four years and felt confident that when I graduated, I would be fully prepared to enter the field of nursing.
I am the President of Omicron Delta Kappa, the Treasurer for Nurses Christian Fellowship and I serve as a Southern Ambassador and Scholar’s Weekend Leader. I am a member of Phi Eta Sigma, Sigma Theta Tau, and Omicron Delta Kappa honor societies and I love to participate in several of the campus ministries and nursing organizations.
My favorite class at Florida Southern has been my "Maternal and Women’s Health" class. It was very engaging and my teacher is incredibly personable. She, like many FSC professors, truly sought to invest in each and every student so that they may have success in her course. Also, I loved that we got to take everything we learned in our course and apply that directly to our simulations lab and then to Lakeland Regional Hospital to work in units such as Labor and Delivery, NICU, and Mother/Baby.
My favorite memory at Florida Southern was Southern Takeover 2018. This was the first time I had experienced this event on Mr. George’s Green and it was unforgettable. The Association of Campus Entertainment brought in great bands such as Joan and American Authors and they had several activities and free food for the students to enjoy. Also, at the end of the concert, I met some of the band members personally. It was truly an unforgettable night.
