I am so proud of each and every member of the class of 2021. It hasn't been easy getting to where we are now, but it was absolutely worth it. I am so proud to be a member of this community. Go owls!

Favorite Time at SCSU

My favorite part of my time at Southern has been meeting and spending time with my amazing friends. I am grateful to Southern for connecting our paths. I have also really enjoyed getting involved on campus. Thank you to Katie and the staff in the Academic Success Center, and to Sal, Devon, and Yarelis in the Office of Orientation, Transition, and Family Engagement for all of your support. And thank you to Drs. McCullagh and Zipoli for the opportunity to contribute to the Auditory Processing, Phonology, and Literacy Evaluation research team as an undergraduate research assistant. I am so grateful for these opportunities, they have all been highlights of my time as an undergraduate student here at Southern.

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

I am looking forward to continuing my education as a student in Southern's master's program in Speech-Language Pathology with my best friends.

Advice to Incoming Students

The best advice I have is to get involved, whether that is in a club or organization, in research, or as a student worker. Getting involved has been a highlight of my time at Southern, and I have had so many great opportunities and valuable experiences as a result of my campus involvement.
