SCSU has given me a world of opportunities and people that have significantly shaped me into the best version of myself. I will never be able to express the amount of gratitude I have for the people I met here. It’s inspiring to be surrounded by some of the brightest individuals this world has to offer. My college is experience is epically unforgettable.

Favorite Time at SCSU

The memories that stick out to me the most are of course my time at Southern News, Crescent magazine and the peer mentoring program. Shout the SNews NYC CMA Conference 2019! The social justice retreat in 2017. Amanda’s Declassified: Trauma Survival Guide radio show with Amanda Valentin was also an amazing memory.

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

I loved the accessibility to my friends, professors and advisers. These people bring inspiration and ambition into my life. The essence of Southern feels like home. Seeing so many people invested in academia brought out the best parts of me. I love studying at the library and hanging out in the student center.

Advice to Incoming Students

Enjoy insignificant moments. Enjoy the accessibility to so many of your friends at the same location. Immerse yourself in knowledge. Join clubs that you’re interested in; everyone else is nervous, too! People want to be your friend. Value and invest in your mental health. Set boundaries with everyone. It’s all a learning experience. Nothing is permanent.
