What is your favorite FSC memory?

My favorite FSC memory was hosting a scholar over Scholars Weekend. I had the chance to meet a potential classmate and host him for a night. We spoke about his goals and expectations of college, as well as ate pancakes and played volleyball on our D1 sand volleyball court. It was a beautiful way of giving back to FSC as well as getting know to a potential member of our community.

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

My favorite thing to do in Lakeland is go to Palace Pizza on Friday with my friend Nick. Nothing is more satisfying than finishing a long productive week of classes then driving seven minutes into town with your favorite song blasting and your windows down on a sunny day and then eating a delicious cheat meal as you make plans for your Friday night.

What has been your favorite class?

Chemistry has opened my eyes to the world around me. A better understanding of what things are and how they work on an atomic level in a way is peaceful because it eliminates part of the mystery of life. The best part of class was the way my teacher taught it. He posted videos made by himself the night before each class, and then would teach in class about the topic he posted. This allowed for students who learn through different mediums to have access to them.

Involvement (clubs/organizations):

I am involved in greek life and Southern Ambassadors. Both organizations have allowed me to gain the qualities of a leader, as well as, help round me out as an individual.
