Quote from Mary Baltimore

My experience at FSC was more than what I ever thought my college experience would be. FSC gave me the opportunity to travel abroad on multiple occasions, experience wonderful professors who have shaped my future.

Mary Baltimore graduated from Florida Southern with a degree in Business Administration; minor in Spanish.

Mary’s advice...

Be confident in yourself and know your worth. Always believe in what you have to offer.

Quote from Brent Willobee

The courses I took at FSC were appropriately challenging to prepare me to succeed in medical school, but that’s something you can find almost anywhere. I thought FSC particularly excelled in providing me with the kind of one-on-one time with faculty members / mentors, which is impossible at larger schools.

Brent Willobee graduated from Florida Southern with a degree in Biology.

Brent’s Advice...

Make time to do the things you can’t put on a medical school application.

Quote from Ashley Gentile

FSC definitely gave me the foundation that I needed to succeed here at Duke. I passed my nursing boards with flying colors. The clinical experience and hands-on classes taught me how to be comfortable in any professional setting.

Ashley Gentile graduated from Florida Southern with a degree in Nursing.

Ashley’s Advice...

Take advantage of the opportunities to study abroad. The experience can be life changing.

Quote from Juliana Cardona Mejia

The key is to be relentless in pursuit of your life’s mission. If you don’t know what your mission is, ask yourself three questions: what makes you happy, what is your talent, and where is the greatest need for what you have to offer (time, money, and passion).

Juliana Cardona Mejia graduated from Florida Southern with a degree in Political Science; minors in Latin American Studies and Communications.

Juliana’s advice...

You will never be ready, at some point you just have to go for it. You will fail. Accept each failure and each day as a brand new start.
