Laura Hackett ’16
Recipient of the Christoverson Scholarship
"I've always been independent," says Laura, who grew up in Venice, FL. "Most of my friends went to large public universities, but I wanted to come to FSC and have a different experience."
Laura, an English major and Honors student, is looking toward developing her writing talents through an MFA program in poetry. "Florida Southern makes you a doer, not just a thinker," she says. "I spent this past summer in Washington, D.C., interning at the Library of Congress. This is just one example of the many opportunities students can take advantage of at Florida Southern. Between clubs, Greek life, social activities, performing arts, honor societies, athletics, and trips to nearby attractions, there's almost an unlimited selection of things to get involved in."
Every day, Laura feels more grateful that she chose FSC and claims the Christoverson Scholarship has supported her tremendously. “Besides financial assistance, it also creates a variety of great connections.”
