Tyler Bond

Admissions Counselor






Where are you from?

I am a Lakeland native, born and raised.

Favorite Spot on Campus

The most breathtaking spot on campus is between one of the two chapels, Annie Pfeiffer or William H. Danforth. However, if I ever take a walk at night, I usually end up at the Polk Science Building overlooking the President’s Residence. 

Favorite Thing about FSC

My favorite thing about this campus is the atmosphere created and cared for here. There is a feeling of security and warmth on this campus, not created by Florida sunshine but by those who make up this institution. The people here genuinely care about your education and want to see you excel.

Something Surprising About Me

Even though I graduated from Florida Southern with a business degree, a lot of people don’t realize just how involved I am in the arts and how much I appreciate them. I love that this school cultivates an appreciation for every aspect of the world, not just sports and finance but the arts and how we see the world.


I was homeschooled throughout most of my early education. I started dual enrolling at Polk State College during high school and transferred to Florida Southern in 2020. I then graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in 2022.



I love music and the arts! I am very involved with musical theatre and play guitar, sing, and write everything from songs to short films.

Favorite TV Shows/Books

Some of my favorite books include the Harry Potter series and the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. One of my favorite TV shows is The Big Bang Theory.

The Perfect Saturday  

My perfect Saturday involves waking up late, cooking pancakes, and watching TV in the morning. Later in the day, I would love to build a LEGO set or play some guitar. After dinner, I would go on a bike ride and read a book before going to bed. 

Favorite Restaurant in Lakeland

I love a lot of places in Lakeland, but the ones I always tell people about are Black & Brew, The Joinery, and Frescos.

Favorite Places to Hang Out in Lakeland

You can usually find me downtown or at Lakeside Village when I'm not on campus. I love walking around the beautiful outdoor public spaces that Lakeland has to offer.
