I chose USF because I felt at home. I was searching for a college experience that was more meaningful and would allow me to explore different parts of myself and be who I wanted to be. USF has given me that and so much more. I truly believe in the USF experience and its transformative nature.

Benefits of Involvement:
I have gained a greater sense of self, confidence and a heightened awareness of how my actions affect my community.
As a student leader at USF we are cultivated to care about much more than ourselves. We are encouraged to be thoughtful about our actions and validate the experiences of those around us. I always joke that USF student leaders are too thoughtful but our Jesuit mission has so much power in our community. We are called to higher understanding of the world and cultural understanding that influences our actions in such amazing ways.
Advice to First Year Students:
Don't be afraid to put yourself out there. It is totally scary sometimes but you deserve all of the opportunities that are out there for you to take.
