Why Florida Southern?

Searching for the right school to spend the next four years of your life is no easy task. As a senior in highschool, I had a list of requirements. I looked for a school that was small, in a sunny climate, gave merit-based scholarships and had a good reputation. After visiting Florida Southern over Scholars Weekend, the standards of my list of requirements increased to a point where only Florida Southern could fit. The students and faculty on the campus share a genuine love and passion for academics and family. Just take one glance at any corner of the campus and you will see a calendar filled with events that ensures everyone is included and never alone here at Florida Southern.

In my spare time I like to...

Hang out with my friends, lift weights, go to my boxing gym, sprint in the soccer field, and read articles about neurology. I love sports and science and hope to meet as many people as I can with the same interests.

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.

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.
