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.

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.

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.

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.
