Why did you choose to attend UWF?
I originally chose UWF because it was far away from home.  I came here with the plans of transferring after two years.  I stayed because I fell in love!  I love the campus scenery, all the genuine people, and the willingness to work with students from faculty.

What do you like best about UWF?
I like how nice the people are here. There are so many people here who actually care for me as a student and will do anything to help.  I also like how most EVERYTHING on campus is run by students.

What do you do in your spare time?
My main commitment is participating in the Ambassador Program.  I am extremely involved on campus through housing, student transitions programs, student activities and involvement, and much more.

What is one piece of advice you would give to a prospective student interested in UWF?
Come and make the best of your experience! You won't enjoy your college experience if you just go to class and then march home right afterwards.  Take advantage of the many opportunities and also get as many faculty and staff on your side as possible.  It will help you in the long run, I promise!

What do you hope to do after you graduate?
I plan to go to grad school with an accepted assistantship of my choice and work.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
The world is pretty large!  I would stick to the U.S. and go with Virginia, Tennessee or Texas.  I would say Canada if I traveled outside the U.S.  Maybe even sounds dreamy and I haven't been there physically like the rest I listed.
