Summa Cum Laude and Departmental Honors

We should be proud of ourselves! Good luck, and never forget that you are unique, worthy, and amazing!

Favorite Time at SCSU

Watching myself and my friends grow. We have changed together in so many positive ways, and the bonds that result from experiencing these shifts together are immeasurable.

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

In all reality, I think I will miss my campus counselor the most! I am immensely grateful for her wisdom throughout my final year at Southern, and I wouldn't be who I am without her. I am looking forward to casually reading. I have a stockpile of books that I plan to work through!

Advice to Incoming Students

Take it easy on yourself. Higher education is challenging, and we all have our limits. There is plentiful academic/emotional support at Southern when you need it.
