Why did you come to UNF?
When I visited I just fell in love with it. The
campus is beautiful and I felt like more than just a number.
What is your favorite aspect of being a student at
It is very hard to nail down one favorite aspect of
being a student at UNF, but if I have to say I think it would be the
faculty and staff. Everyone always seems so nice and helpful. It is truly a
student-centered atmosphere both in and out of the classroom.
What opportunities have you had at UNF that you
might not have had elsewhere?
Being at UNF I have had the opportunity to study
abroad twice, be in the Honors program for four years, as well as, get to know
the faculty and staff on campus that I have come in contact with through jobs,
classes and extra curricular activities. Due to the large school
population at many universities, which causes them to be very selective and
have to spread their pot of money more thinly, I would not have otherwise had
How have these opportunities shaped your
"personal journey" (collegiate and otherwise)?
These opportunities have opened my eyes to
different things I might be interested in both professionally as well as
socially. I have always known that I want to get a masters degree, but I
thought I would want to study Administration and Supervision, but now I am
thinking about getting a degree in higher education or student affairs and
possibly working for non-profit. I definitely want to volunteer my time
to help others and some experiences I have had in college have helped
open my eyes to some new ways to do so.
Do you currently have or plan to participate in any
I am currently interning as the Honors Recruitment
Assistant in the Honors Program, and I will be interning at Woodland Acre
Elementary in the fall in a 5th grade classroom.
Where do you think your UNF education will
take you in the future?
I hope that my UNF education, in and out of the
classroom, because it is so well rounded will help me to get into a good
graduate program and get a good job working in the field of my choice, of which
I am not sure what that will be.
