Why did you choose Georgia Southern?

I decided to attend Georgia Southern after I was invited to the Southern Scholars Showcase because I was offered some scholarships and a spot in the honors program! After touring the Armstrong Campus, I felt right at home and my experience here has been great so far!

What is your favorite place on campus and why?

My favorite place on campus is the Student Recreation Center because I can unwind and get a good workout in!

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

As a new student, my favorite part of the SOAR program was “First Night Out” because I had a lot of fun playing dodge ball and mingling with my future classmates.

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

The best piece of advice that I can give to incoming students is to use your time wisely. You will have a lot more free time, which if used wisely, will make your transition into college much smoother and your experience overall much better.

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

My favorite experience thus far at Georgia Southern was my time volunteering with the elderly people at Senior Citizens Inc. It was a lot of fun to hear their life stories and to build meaningful connections with them. I can’t wait to go back!

Fun Fact!

I like to sing and play piano!
