Tour Guide at Florida Southern College
Class of 2020
Hometown: Plant City, FL
Major: Political Science
My favorite activity in Lakeland is biking around Lake Hollingsworth. The views are pretty and if you’re lucky you might even catch a glimpse of an alligator or even an otter! Sometimes I head out before the sun comes up and watch the sunrise with my friends. Super beautiful and I would recommend that experience to anyone!
My favorite memory was my first ever Winter Wonderland! It is my favorite traditional event on campus where real snow is brought to campus. As a Floridian who has never seen snow, it's pretty exciting. I went sledding and made my own hot chocolate. It was a great time to hang out with friends and relieve the stress from finals before heading home for winter break!
Go to Downtown Lakeland! There are a ton of cute coffee shops and restaurants I like to go with my friends. Some nights they even have a food truck rally!
When I first toured Florida Southern, I fell in love. I loved the small community feel of the campus and the hands-on aspect that the classes had. Having small classes and being able to work one on one with my professors was something I was looking for during my college search. My advisors had reached out to me the minute I had been enrolled as a Political Science student and were very helpful from my first year here and they still are now as a junior!
