Blue and Grey Fellowship Society

About

The Blue & Grey Society is a prestigious Hicks Honors College organization. Students are selected based on their platinum or diamond status and invited to join, at which point they are assigned a faculty mentor. The society meets several times throughout the semester, and hear from departments campus-wide about various opportunities. During Fall semester, the Blue & Grey society has a special dinner with President Delaney. For more information about this program, contact honors@unf.edu.

 Andrew Barrow

 

 AndrewBarrow

My name is Andrew Barrow. I’m from Largo, a town about four and a half hours southwest from Jacksonville. My mentor is Dr. Gilg. Fittingly, I’m a bio major, specializing in ecology and evolution. Seemed like a good subject to study up on before a museum studies program available only as a master’s program up at George Washington University. My hobbies include drawing, card games, trivia games, taking walks, and watching or listening to comedy.






Christine Breault
 Christine Breault

My name is Christine Breault and I am from Saint Cloud, Florida. I am here at UNF to major in nutrition and dietetics. My faculty mentor is Dr. Andrea Arikawa. When not in class, I enjoy running, reading, and cooking. Once I graduate, I hope to become a registered dietitian.






Teresa Conroy
 Teresa Conroy

My name is Teresa Conroy and I am from Tallahassee, Florida. I am the youngest of five children and I love playing with my nephews. I really enjoy playing golf and I am on the Osprey Women’s Golf Team. I plan on majoring in Statistics because I love numbers that have a meaning. My mentor is Dr. Richard Patterson.






Randy Lee
 Randy Lee

My name is Randy Lee and I was born in Germantown, Maryland, but have lived in Jacksonville ever since I moved here when I was one. I am pursuing a Mathematics major, BA, with Creative Writing, Interdisciplinary Honors, and Asian Studies minors. My mentor is Dr. Dedeo, who is a math professor. In my free time I play a lot of video and board games. I love games a lot. When I’m not playing games, I’m usually reading or listening to music.






Ryan Lopez
 Ryan Lopez

My name is Ryan D. Lopez and I was born and raised in Miami, Fl. I’m currently a Chemistry major with a Biochemistry focus however, I have aspirations of attending Medical School and ultimately becoming a surgeon (unsure of specialty). I was paired with my mentor Dr. Amy Lane due to our mutual interest in the Biochemical aspect of Chemistry. Since then I have been assigned my own project in Dr. Lane’s research lab and have slowly but surely been learning the ropes of the position. Other than academics, I spend most of my time playing sports, most specifically, baseball which I’ve played since age 5.






Aryssa Mansfield
Aryssa Mansfield

My name is Aryssa Mansfield, and I have lived about an hour away from Jacksonville for 12 years now in a town called Green Cove Springs. In high school I was heavily involved in theatre and dance which both qualify as my two most time consuming hobbies. My majors are International Business and Business Administration; I have a minor in French in addition to my honors minor as well. I hope one day to use the business skills I acquire here at UNF (and in Marseilles) to start and manage my own theatre one day. My faculty mentor is Dr. Gallo.






Madeline Mickler
 Madeline Mickler

My name is Madeline Mickler, and I was born in Miami, Florida, but grew up here in Jacksonville. I am the oldest of six children -- four girls and two boys. I graduated from Bartram Trail High School in 2015 and was on my way to FSU, but decided to take a gap year in Detroit and Lansing, Michigan. After getting back, I changed my mind about attending FSU, and am now an Osprey. I am majoring in engineering, and my faculty mentor is Professor Tryon, who is currently teaching two of my classes! I generally enjoy learning, which is part of the reason why I chose to attend UNF and apply to its honors college. I also enjoy playing the piano, reading, and delighting in nature -- wherever and whenever. (Another reason why I chose UNF.)

My name is Ashton Ray and I am proud to be part of the Osprey Nation.  I am from Macclenny, Florida where I graduated as Salutatorian of my class and served as captain of the swim team.  My UNF mentor is Dr. Judith Orchrietor in the biology department.  I am seeking a degree in Biomedical Sciences and plan to attend the University of Florida School of Dentistry after graduation from UNF.  I plan to be an Orthodontist and use my Dental skills on many medical mission trips to underprivileged countries.  Most of my time is spent studying, but in my spare time I enjoy painting.  In 2013, I started my own business making and selling custom art pieces.  I set up a booth at 2-3 craft shows in the fall and sell the pieces I’ve created throughout the year.  My current portfolio includes over 45 pieces and I am actively creating more before my first show next month in Macintosh.  I also enjoy saltwater fishing, watersports, and watching movies.
