Why I Chose Stetson:

I chose Stetson because I felt seen. My admissions recruiter continued to check up on me and help me through the process. The financial aid department had been a huge help in ensuring that my education was affordable. When I finally visited Stetson, I enjoyed the campus and was excited to become a Hatter!

Involvements on Campus:

Student Ambassadors, Latinx Student Union

What I Like to Do on Weekends:

On the weekends I relax and hang out with my friends. Whether it be going downtown, to the Beach, or trying new food, I'm there!

My Favorite Class at Stetson:

My favorite class is my Junior Seminar: "Not your Hollywood Blockbuster". I enjoy it because I get to learn about films outside of Hollywood. We watch, discuss, and present interesting films across the world!

Advice to Prospective Students:

Challenge yourself and stay focused on your goals, but remember to have fun!

Favorite Place on Campus:

My favorite place on campus is the library. I always run into my friends as we get ready to study. The environment is very friendly and makes me feel productive.
