Most Surprising Thing About College Life:

The most surprising thing about college life was how involved you can be on campus. The opportunities to find activities that you enjoy are endless and it can surprise you just how many the school provides for students to interact in numerous ways.

How She Knew that JSU was the Right Fit:

I knew that JSU was the right place for me the first time I stepped on campus. Stepping on campus and seeing the beautiful scenery, the friendly people, unique events, and amazing location made me feel like my home away from home. At that moment, I knew it was the right place for me.

Advice for New Students:

College will fly by just like your high school years so enjoy it while you can! This is the place you will make the best memories and meet the people who you will cherish for the rest of your life. Make the best of the opportunities that are available for you. Make some new friends, join some clubs, go to the fun events that interest you, and most of all make your time an experience you will never forget.

Favorite Class:

My favorite class is my behavioral analyst class. I love being able to learn how people behave the way they do and prepare for my future in the psychology field.

Favorite Meal in the 'Ville:

Personally, the place on campus that I love to go to is Chick-Fil-A at the TMB. Then off campus I love Yamato SteakHouse of Japan.

Favorite JSU Moment:

My favorite JSU moments are the many times I get to spend with my sorority sisters. The endless ways we are involved to make a difference in many ways on campus and fun activities through the semesters have definitely made it a memorable way to spend my college life. Through Fundraisers for arthritis, many nights spending time with each other, and being able to learn key skills from such strong and empowered women have been my favorite moments of my college experience.

Favorite Thing to Do Outside of Class:

My favorite thing to do outside of class is hangout with the sisters in my sorority and go on adventures exploring the beautiful nature around campus.
