What is your favorite FSC memory?

My favorite FSC memory has been my junior journey tip abroad! I traveled throughout the British Virgin Islands on a power catamaran and studied the coral reefs and cultures on the islands. We also helped restore damage caused by Hurricane Irma by replanting palm trees along the beach. We spent our days swimming in the crystal clear ocean, snorkeling through caves, and hiking and exploring the islands. My junior journey allowed me to get to know students from other majors at FSC as well as explore the world. It was an incredible experience that I will never forget!

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

My favorite thing to do in Lakeland is to attend free yoga classes on Lake Hollingsworth! YLakeland organizes the event and it is a great way to relax and spend time outdoors after a busy week.

In my spare time I like to...

In my spare time I like to swim at the pool, run around the beautiful Lake Hollingsworth, or attend free workout classes lead by FSC students! I also enjoy attending campus events such as Winter Wonderland, Southern Takeover, and Farewell Festival!

Why Florida Southern?

I chose to attend FSC because of the campus community and high level of education the school has to offer. I first visited FSC as a high school junior, and from the moment I stepped on campus I knew this was the school for me. Every student I talked to was friendly, sincere, and wanting to get to know me. The pride they had from being a Moc was noticeable and contagious, which lead me to want to become one too. Additionally, FSC’s nursing program ensures academic success in the field, as students work with engaged faculty, advanced equipment, and Lakeland Regional Hospital as early as their freshman year. FSC’s pass rate on the NCLEX exam is in the nineties which further proves it is a phenomenal school to study at to become a nurse.
