Casey Carter

Senior | Exercise Science | Augusta, GA

Why did you choose Georgia Southern?

Georgia Southern was my first and only choice. Originally, I came to Southern for the Athletic Training program because I wanted to be just like Queen Latifah in the movie Just Wright, but life had other plans, and I’m happy that I chose to come here.

What is your favorite place on campus and why?

The Union because it’s the hub of Georgia Southern. It’s where I see most of my friends and study on campus.

As a new student, what was your favorite part of SOAR?

Honestly, getting to know the campus. I don’t remember much about SOAR, but I definitely remember getting lost with my best friend at the time, and somehow we ended up at the Williams Center and got free hot dogs and coke floats.

What is one piece of advice you would give to incoming students?

Surround yourself with people who see the best you and want the best for you.

What is your favorite memory/experience at Georgia Southern thus far?

The people! I love meeting new people, and since the campus is so big, you get to everyday.

Fun Fact!

I am the only biological granddaughter on both my mother and father’s side.
