Why Florida Southern?

I love the small community feel here at FSC, the abundance of opportunities to get involved, and the beautiful campus that we get to call home! I also truly believe the nursing program here is the perfect fit for me because I love all the professors in the nursing department, we experience engaged learning on a daily basis, class sizes are small, and I feel like I'm being very well prepared to dive into my field after graduation. I couldn't imagine calling anywhere else home and I'm so thankful for the world class experience Florida Southern has given me for the past three years!

What is your favorite FSC memory?

I have so many favorite memories at FSC! Every scholars weekend I've been able to serve as a scholars weekend leader has been such a privilege and I truly enjoy helping prospective students find their home here. I absolutely love greek life events like big/little reveals, bid days, recruitment, founders days, formals and semi-formals, philanthropy events, mixers, senior celebrations, and so many more! I love getting to help grow my Greek community and serving as Panhellenic President has been my absolute favorite part of my college experience so far! I also couldn't imagine my time here without the people I've met who have been apart of these special memories like my Panhellenic sisters, the wonderful RAs on my team every year, the other Southern Ambassadors I've given tours with, the inspiring faculty, and so many more Mocs who have made FSC feel like home!

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

My favorite thing to do in Lakeland is grab a bite to eat with some friends! Abuelo's, Tea Largo, Patio 850, HTeaO, Born and Bread, and Palace Pizza are my absolute favorites here in Lakeland and I honestly could not recommend them enough!

In my spare time I like to...

I'm an annual pass holder, so I love going to the Disney parks! I also really enjoy walking Lake Hollingsworth, exploring Lakeland, and spending time with friends! Central Florida, especially Lakeland, has truly become a second home for me the past few years and there's always something to do here in the sunshine state!
