Why I Chose Stetson:

Originally, I was going to Daytona State for two years and then transferring, but I applied to Stetson on a whim and ended up getting in!

Involvements on Campus:

I'm involved in Student Ambassadors, on-campus jobs, athletic tutoring, ODK, and Residential Living and Learning.

What I Like to Do on Weekends:

I love traveling to the beach if it's sunny and hot, but any other type of weather you can find me hiking in the Florida nature trails.

My Favorite Class at Stetson:

My favorite class to take was Nature Writing, in which we would sit outside and write about plants and wildlife that we saw. After going over a couple of different nature articles, getting a hang of the writing style was very easy! Having the time to sit down/walk around for an hour to look at plants, insects, and trees was the mental relaxation I needed.

Advice to Prospective Students:

Don't give up, make sure you tour each campus and ask lots of questions about your program. Even if one person does not know all the answers, chances are they know someone who does.

Favorite Place on Campus:

The Coffee Shop, the staff are so friendly and always willing to lend a hand.
