What I Like to Do on Weekends:

On weekends, I like to check out new places around town with my friends. I love to go to the farmer's market on Fridays and just relax after the school week. 

My Favorite Class at Stetson:

I think my favorite class at Stetson would probably be my Russian classes. I really value learning Russian as a second language and I love being able to apply it outside of the classroom as well. My professors have always been extremely dedicated to helping out and I recommend taking Russian to anyone.

Advice to Prospective Students:

My advice to prospective students is to get out there! The more clubs or activities that you try or are involved in the better the overall school experience is. Going to involvement fairs and finding different clubs to be active in is a great way to make friends and all hang out while enjoying the same things.

Favorite Place on Campus:

I think my favorite place on campus is the upstairs outside balcony of the library. It is a great place to study during finals and the view is gorgeous since it overlooks campus. It is a very quiet area where I can focus hard on my schoolwork.
