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 has been your favorite class?

My favorite class so far has been my Adult Health Nursing Care II class because this class truly taught me how to think like a nurse. While learning about various acute illnesses that widely affect the adult population, we learned how to think critically, prioritize patient-centered care, and develop our clinical reasoning skills. My professor for the course, Dr. Radecki, is also one of the best professors I've ever had. She's so passionate about teaching and I felt truly cared about as a person and as a student in her class.

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!

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!
