Why Florida Southern?

When I began applying for colleges during my senior year of high school, I originally had no intention of wanting to attend s school out of state. However, when I found Florida Southern online, it seemed to have everything I was looking for in a school — a direct-entry nursing program, a dance program, and a smaller academic environment. When I visited FSC during Scholars Weekend, I knew I had found my home away from home! My professors at Florida Southern have truly gone above and beyond to make sure I am successful, not only in their classes, but also for life after graduation.

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

My favorite spot in Lakeland is located on 801 E Main Street, also known as the Poor Porker! The Poor Porker serves beignets, coffee, and often has live music on the weekends. The atmosphere there is truly unique, and I love going there on a weekend afternoon to catch up on homework and studying!

What is your favorite FSC memory?

Since it’s too hard for me to pick just one, so I'll name a few! The Discover Florida trips through FSC have led to some of my favorite college memories. On one trip, I had the opportunity to go snorkeling and see dolphins, and another trip was to Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights! I had a lot of fun on both of these trips with some of my best friends!

What has been your favorite class?

One of my favorite classes at Florida Southern was “What Is Religion”. I enjoyed this class so much because it was primarily discussion-based; I loved being able to have thoughtful discussions with my peers and the professor! This class really challenged me to think outside of the box, and it gave me a whole new way of viewing religion.
