Why I Chose Stetson:

I wanted to go to a school that offered not only the arts, but sports as well. Coming all the way from New York I wanted a school that would really allow me to explore all of my vast interests. I am so fortunate that I was able to go to a school that allowed me to be close to family, but also allowed me to take a class in every single field so I would know which career field is perfect for me. I also found the location of Stetson to be optimal because Disney is a hop, skip and a jump away. 

Involvements on Campus:

Alpha Kappa Psi Business Fraternity, Peace Corp Prep Program, Student Ambassadors; Sports Communication Assistant job; Telecenter Caller

What I Like to Do on Weekends:

I like to go to Disney, visit my family in Orlando, go to the beach, and eat out with friends in downtown DeLand. 

My Favorite Class at Stetson:

My FSEM, Secret Life of Bees, because we got to bee keep and harvest honey at the end of the year.

Advice to Prospective Students:

Get involved, it is your job to make the most of your experience. If you are scared to try something new, go for it - you never know who you will meet. 

Favorite Place on Campus:

My favorite place on campus is the Coffeeshop; I love the comfy couches and all the delicious foods and beverages they offer.
