Why I Chose Stetson:

I chose Stetson because of how wonderful the community is. Everyone here is so active and it's easy to make friends with so many people on campus and I love how supportive the faculty and staff are. 

Involvements on Campus:

Student Ambassador, FOCUS Orientation Leader, and Hatter Network as a news writer for the Reporter.

What I Like to Do on Weekends:

I like to go out, go to the beach and have fun with friends and family. There are times that I like to relax and take it easy. Also, I like spending time at theme parks like Disney and Universal.

My Favorite Class at Stetson:

I have three favorite classes I took. My first favorite class I enjoyed was Rhetorical Theory & Criticism with Dr. Johnson because I liked how we were able to write an analysis on anything. For instance, I wrote an analysis about Lady Gaga and her album Joanne. My second favorite is Gender, Sexuality & Reality in Media with professor Andy Dehnart because it was so interesting analyzing how gender and sexuality are portrayed in the media, and Professor Dehnart is an amazing professor, he helped me how to write good papers and helped me discover what I'm thinking of doing as a career. And my third and last favorite class I took is Principles of Acting with professor Trevin Cooper because it was so much fun working with professor Cooper and acting out the different dialogues we were provided.

Advice to Prospective Students:

My advice to prospective students is to never be afraid to try new things to step out of your comfort zone. Stetson has a variety of clubs and organizations you can be a part of, and it's a great way to make friends and do things that possibly you have never done before. Also, never be afraid to ask any questions you have. Your peers, professors, and the faculty here at Stetson are always here to help you succeed and find great opportunities on campus.

Favorite Place on Campus:

My favorite place on campus is Palm Court because I always feel like it's the heart of Stetson, and because I love palm trees.
