What is your favorite FSC memory?

My favorite FSC memory would have to be on Halloween having the Christmas tree up on the green and seeing it make so many people happier and in better spirits nearing the end of the semester. It brought a lot of people out of their dorms and allowed for socially distanced outdoor interaction.

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

If I could have the Lakeland Farmers market everyday then I would!

Why Florida Southern?

I was immediately drawn into the small family aspect of Florida Southern. I strongly recall coming to my scholars weekend and being able to speak with possible search opportunities with professors and them continuing to reach out to me after leaving my scholars weekend. I quickly realized that you don’t get that care and attention from professors at just any state university. I found home in Florida Southern.

What has been your favorite class?

Oddly enough my what’s religion course has been my favorite so far even though it has nothing to do with my majors. It was one of those classes that made me appreciate the function of general education credits and expanding my horizons.
