South’s location is awesome because is only about 30 miles or so from the beach. So, its really not hard to make a quick weekend getaway. I love MobTown because I feel like I always find something new every time I go downtown. Whether is Mardi Gras or I’m just enjoying great food on a spring evening. South’s campus has a really awesome atmosphere because of how open it is. It really invites some of our natural surroundings that are so inherit to Alabama to be part of our campus life. When I visited South’s campus I loved everything about it especially the faculty. I think that was the biggest thing, because everyone was so friendly. I think what makes South special, is a very student centered atmosphere. Is that when you arrive to campus you already feel like part of the community. When I applied to South I was very pleased to see that I was in a university that offered me so many different opportunities and that is what really made me feel like I was in the right place.

Being involved in a researched based university really gave me the confidence to pursue what I wanted. It enabled to feel like I could really applied what I learned to make a change and difference in society. South has definitely prepared me for the future. All the opportunities that I’ve had prepared me for, you know, getting the job, but also maintaining a strong work ethic.
