A passion for change drives Keri Smith.
A fascination with how people interact led Keri Smith to choose sociology as her major. The wealth of service and research opportunities on campus makes FSC a great place to put what she’s learning to use.
Smith plans to study psychology in graduate school and then get her license to be a mental health counselor, specializing in marriage and family therapy or pediatric trauma therapy.
“I am passionate about making interactions more positive through serious introspection and assessment,” she says.
That passion for positive change led Smith to found a campus chapter of TZeDeK, an organization dedicated to social justice.
Smith is also involved in Beyond, a campus ministry, and she sings in the chapel band. She is a Southern Ambassador and a sister in Kappa Delta sorority. You’ll often find her studying at the Jackson Religion Building — or enjoying its comfy couches and ping-pong or pool tables.
