Carlos Chavez

Junior | Mechanical Engineering | Sandersville, Georgia 

Why did you choose Georgia Southern?

Georgia Southern University was the best option for me since the Mechanical Engineering program here is one of the best in the state.

What is your favorite place on campus and why?

The I.T. building is my favorite place on campus because I enjoy the environment that it offers. There are places to sit and do homework, a GUSMart and also the Boar’s Head sandwiches.

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

I loved the energy the SOAR leaders gave towards everything that they did. It made me want to give more energy into everything I did at SOAR.

What is the most important piece of advice you would give to incoming students?

To get involved on campus. There are many different people you can meet through organizations.

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

My favorite experience at GSU would have to be (of course) opening the acceptance letter for SOAR. It was a moment of bliss. Seeing that I am able to engrave my name into the SOAR legacy of the school is unbelievable.

Fun Fact: 

I play the saxophone.
