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

I always love to go to the Lakeside Villages. Between Coldstone Ice Cream and the movie theater, we always have something to do. It is a great place to hang out with friends and relax on the weekends, plus, it’s not too far from campus!

Why Florida Southern?

I always knew that I needed a small school, with a tight-knit community. After learning about the robust biology department here, I knew that FSC was the perfect fit for me. After attending Scholars Weekend, I was convinced that this is where I needed to be. Everyone I met during the weekend was extremely helpful and informative, plus, the atmosphere was exactly what I was looking for. Furthermore, during Scholars Weekend, I met staff members who just showed how much they cared about the students, and how much they want us all to succeed.

What is your favorite FSC memory?

My favorite FSC memory is the 2018 Southern Takeover Event. Having American Authors come to campus and perform was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I will never forget. I had an amazing time with friends and fellow students as we all enjoyed wonderful music. It was such a great time that I hope my next Southern Takeover events will be just as fun!

Involvement (clubs/organizations):

I am a member of Alpha Epsilon Delta (AED) the Pre-Health Honor Society and Phi Eta Sigma the Academic Honor Society. I am also the Vice President of Rotaract, a service organization sponsored by Rotary International. Aside from working with Southern Ambassadors, I work for the Biology department as a Lab Teaching Assistant.
