I chose Florida Southern because of the wonderful opportunities, as well as the community. I am a transfer student, and when I was looking for the perfect school to go to, Florida Southern just caught my eye right away. I loved the location as well as the weather (being from Minnesota) and I felt like it would be a place where I would feel at home. I heard about the school through a friend who had already spent a year here, and the way she described the people and the atmosphere had me sold immediately and coming to this school my expectations have not only been met, but exceeded. I love my school and I am very proud to go here.
My favorite class hands down has been my tap class that I took. The instructor was so very talented and positive, and that made the class fun to follow and a joy to be in. He paid very close attention to everyone's specific needs and goals and was more than willing to take the time to make sure someone understood a concept before moving on. All of my teachers at this school have made class enjoyable which is very different from my old college.
My favorite thing to do in Lakeland is hands down walk around the lake. I love specifically walking during sunset, as the weather is nice and the view is unbeatable. I also love to see all of the happy people also walking around the lake. The positive energy that is there really impacts me every time I go for a walk around the lake. My other favorite spot is specifically on campus, and it is the small bench swing right outside the wellness center. I often will wing there and write papers during the day overlooking the lake and that is when I am working at my best.
My favorite FSC memory is definitely winter wonderland night out on Mr. George's Green. The school brought in snow and made a sledding hill which was really special to me since I am from Minnesota. The event also had s'mores, a bounce house, a DJ, and a huge Christmas tree and it really just made me very happy. I also got to enjoy the even with my closest friend who I also met on campus which made it even better. I will never forget my first winter wonderland celebration here.
