Shani Lizardi, MS

Associate Director of Adult and Graduate Admission






I am proud to call Lakeland, FL my official new hometown, but I was born in New York and raised in Arecibo, Puerto Rico.


BS in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin Parkside and MS in Administrative Leadership from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.

On Working With FSC Admissions

Working at Florida Southern College with our Adult and Graduate Students seeking academic growth is extremely rewarding. I enjoy being able to build relationships with prospective students, break down the admission process and make continuing education possible for them. FSC has top-notch, flexible programming to accommodate adult learners and their busy schedules, so this makes it even easier to help them choose a great program that will fit their needs.

Favorite Spot On Campus

The campus is gorgeous! I am sure my spots will change over time, but I love being able to see Lake Hollingsworth while enjoying our impressive architecture.

Favorite Local Restaurant

Uncle Nick’s – it’s a Deli, but I love it!

Favorite Thing to Do in Lakeland

My favorite thing is enjoying all the natural beauty Lakeland has to offer. Riding bikes at Alderman Ford or going to outdoor events by our lakes or downtown.

Favorite Movies, Books, and/or shows

Star Wars, Marvel and DC, inspirational books, Adam Sandler comedies, psychological thrillers and scary movies, books, and series.


I love and appreciate music, dancing, tasty food, and cooking. Gardening is an old passion of mine, but roller skating is a recent hobby my family and I are really excited about.
