Why I Chose Stetson:

I chose Stetson for many reasons. One, for the small class sizes and the academics. Two, for the ability to commute to campus. Third, for the wide variety of majors and minors. Fourth, for the "Stetson Community" feel I have ALWAYS received at Stetson since the moment I started considering this school and up until now.

Involvements on Campus:

I am involved with Student Ambassadors, Hatterthon, and Student Government Association. I am an FTKrew Captain for Hatterthon and an At-Large Senator with the Student Government Association.

What I Like to Do on Weekends:

I enjoy hanging out with friends and family on the weekends.

My Favorite Class at Stetson:

My favorite class so far at Stetson is probably the History of Ancient Rome class I am currently taking. It is taught by the AMAZING Dr. Reiter and I enjoy it because of the material covered, the passion that Dr. Reiter brings to the class when teaching, and because of the projects and papers, we have had and will get to do in this class.

Advice to Prospective Students:

I would advise prospective students to really examine the majors and minors of the college they are looking at and how many they think would interest them - outside of the main major they would consider. I would also advise interacting with the college or university as much as possible before making a final decision. For me, the Stetson Community and the welcoming atmosphere of Stetson and the student body were very important in my decision-making process when choosing Stetson.

Favorite Place on Campus:

One of my favorite places on campus would be Palm Court.
