Summa Cum Laude

Despite not being able to have an in-person ceremony as a Fall 2019 graduate, I praise God for sustaining my life & keeping my family, friends, & I healthy during these unprecedented times. During my years at Southern, I’ve met so many amazing people, faculty, & have gained an invaluable education, opportunities, & community. When I say Southern was my home, I MEAN it. From living on campus, to the on-campus events, to the diversity, to the solidarity during rough times, I am glad to have chosen Southern as my undergraduate institution & I would not have had it any other way. Through the ups & downs of college, I give the glory to God for allowing me to accomplish many goals at Southern, & with 100% certainty I will say that it is only by Jesus Christ’s power that I’ve been able to do so. God bless all of my family members, friends, faculty/staff, & classmates that supported me along the way. I am blessed to be on my journey to become a medical doctor at University of Connecticut School of Medicine.

Favorite Time at SCSU

The on-campus events & clubs that truly build a sense of community on campus.

What are you going to miss the most, and what are you looking forward to the most?

I am going to miss all of the compassionate, inspiring, & empathetic people that I’ve met at Southern. Not to mention Conn’s Au Gratin Potatoes. 😋

Advice to Incoming Students

Put your faith in Jesus Christ, He is the answer to all of life’s uncertainties. Pray, study hard in Buley library until you’re done with your day’s work- THEN go to the Buley patio events. 🤣
