A Massachusetts native, Nicole wanted to come to a Florida school to escape the snowy winters. She had a lot of different schools in mind and always thought she would end up at a large university, receiving big scholarships from those institutions. But Scholars Weekend happened. And so did a Prestige Scholarship.
“I fell in love with FSC’s campus, the people I met, the location on Lake Hollingsworth, and really everything else about the school as well!” she says. “Florida Southern is one of the most beautiful campuses you will ever see!”
A consistently conscientious student with a 3.9 high school GPA, Nicole has always looked toward the future, with a plan to be a physical therapist. It took only one interview with her during Scholars Weekend for FSC professors to realize the amazing potential she has a McClurg Scholar.
With graduate school on her mind, Nicole knows the scholarship is another advantage she has when it comes to making that transition after FSC. “A scholarship will show the doctorate programs I apply to that I am a high-quality student who is determined to succeed.”
"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.”
When Casey Moulton graduated in 2013, he became the first in his immediate family to hold a bachelor’s degree.
But the Jenkins Scholar did not stop there. After attending the Southeastern Theatre Conference (SETC), Casey caught the attention of numerous graduate programs and ultimately accepted a full scholarship and an assistantship position at the University of Louisville’s master of fine arts theatre arts program.
"I owe my current position as an MFA acting student to the experience and training I had in FSC's theatre studies," says Casey. "Without the scholarship, I would not have been able to afford college and take advantage of all that Florida Southern has to offer. The Jenkins scholarship has been an incredible gift."
You have the opportunities to leave an enduring legacy at Florida southern by putting the college in your will or as a beneficiary to your estate.
