From the faculty, to staff, to students, they have all made this experience great. I still remember one of my math professors explaining how he jumped off a building to prove his theory for his doctorate.

Hometown: Orange Park, FL

Major: Business Analytics

Favorite Thing About Florida Poly: My favorite thing about Florida Poly is that I can have fun outside of the classroom. I was able to start a Women's Club Soccer Team as well as a Women's Powerlifting Team on campus. The people on the teams have made it worth the hard work. Every day I'm doing something with somebody; I'm never left sitting bored by myself at home.

Favorite Location on Campus: My favorite location on campus is the SDC (Student Development Center). This is where the gym and intramural fields are located. I'm there pretty much every day, working out, lifting, or talking to my friends who work there. The facilities are also super clean, and it has lots of great equipment for me to do my lifts.
