What I Like to Do on Weekends:

My Favorite Class at Stetson:

My favorite class at Stetson so far is Calculus for Business Decisions with Dr. Vogel.

Advice to Prospective Students:

I would definitely say that the first semester on campus can be fairly daunting, but if you make sure you finish your assignments before you do anything fun, it'll make you feel more accomplished like you "earned" going out and keep you on track in your classes. 

Favorite Place on Campus:

The Coffee Shop is my favorite place on campus because it's a one-stop shop for coffee, studying, and hanging out with my friends.
