What I Like to Do on Weekends:

On weekends I enjoy going around downtown DeLand and trying new restaurants. DeLand has a wide range of restaurants from Thai to Cuban that are within walking distance from campus. I also enjoy doing activities with the clubs I am in or going to the beach with friends. 

My Favorite Class at Stetson:

My favorite class was my American Cultural Traditions class with Dr. Paul Croce. In class we deconstructed American culture, pinpointing critical moments of its development and discussing how that affects our relationship with the world and the concept of democracy at large. 

Advice to Prospective Students:

My advice to prospective students is to make sure to use the resources available to you to their fullest! Tutors, career advising, and the library are just a few resources Stetson has, at no extra charge, to help you succeed academically and career-wise. 

Favorite Place on Campus:

My favorite place on campus is the DuPont Ball Library. It is a relaxing environment to study in and has many features such as the Innovation Lab that are excellent for working on personal projects.
