Senior | Sport Management | Fayetteville, GA

Why did you choose Georgia Southern?

GSU sort of forced its way into my life. After taking a year off from school, I transferred in simply because my program was offered. Three years later, my major has changed twice and there’s no place I would have rather been.

What is your favorite place on campus and why?

J.I. Clements Stadium – Going to a game here is one of the more underrated activities on campus. It truly is one of the most gorgeous parks on a college campus and when filled, provides a nice home-field advantage.

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

I did not have much of a SOAR experience as a transfer student. However, seeing the impact that this program has on incoming students and families has brought me back for a second round! Ask questions, we’re students just like you and want to help ease this transition process.

What advice would you give incoming students? 

Explore! Find what interests you…Love Sports? – We’ve got ’em…Want to Model?- Got that too…Love Ice Cream? – Not sure about that one….but if it doesn’t exist, create it!! These opportunities to explore the things you love and discover new ones are the easiest ways to make friends and enjoy life at Southern. They also tend to lead to the most connections and overall growth.

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

Fun Fact: 

When I go to Dunkin’ they already know my order…I may have a slight problem 🙂
