Why did you choose Georgia Southern?

While stepping foot on Georgia Southern’s campus I immediately felt at home. Something about this place is just so special. I truly felt like I was treated as a student instead of just a number. Georgia southern provides incredible opportunities to grow as a student as well as a student leader.

What is your favorite place on campus and why?

For sure Paulson Stadium. Football games are some of the best memories I have at GSU. It’s a place where the community and the university all get together and show the most true blue spirit.

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

To be completely honest mine was just being at orientation l. I loved getting to meet new people and learn about upcoming opportunities and organizations to get involved in.

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

Be yourself! College is a new chapter of your life so make it what you want. It is a fresh start to be whoever you want to be. Get involved and step out of your comfort zone.

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

This past year when we beat App State. It was raining the entire game and everyone was soaked. When the game ended, the stadium rushed the field. It was so incredible getting to do that with some of my very best friends.

Fun Fact: 

I have traveled to 14 different countries!
