Why Florida Southern?

I applied to fourteen schools as a high school student, and Florida Southern offered me a scholarship that I couldn't refuse! While I was hesitant about going to a smaller school, choosing FSC was the best decision I have ever made! The community here fosters a warmth, character development, and access to opportunity that is unique. This college works hard to make students feel valued and ready for the professional world.

What has been your favorite class?

My favorite class has been "Christian Ethics" with Dr. Hamilton! He did a great job facilitating a great discussion-based environment that allowed everyone's opinions to be respected but also challenged. Plus. Dr. Hamilton is just a super fun guy!

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

As a self-proclaimed foodie, visiting the different amazing restaurants around Lakeland, from Black and Brew to Palace Pizza — both an absolute delight! Plus, the food truck rallies every month in Munn Park make it so easy to expand your tastes!
