A True Stetson Believer

How Stetson made a believer out of me.

A True Stetson Believer

Many people outside of Stetson University believe that Stetson is this phenomenal university that sits in Deland, Florida. The University has amazing professors, qualified staff, and some of the best academics in the south, earning the name the "Harvard of the South." Coming from Georgia I had never heard of Stetson University, but now I must say that this school has made me believer in everything that they stand for.

When first getting on-campus at Stetson University I was amazed at how beautiful it was due to the resemblance that it had to my undergraduate institution. I LOVE the palm trees, the weather, and most importantly the lesser percentage of humidity. It definitely made its mark on me visually when I first stepped on the campus. From the visual aspect of Stetson, I was definitely in, and I was on cloud nine after meeting all of the faculty, staff, and administration when I started working.

Upon starting work, I was introduced to so many people. If you know me, you know that I love people, meeting them, and also hearing their stories. With that being said, I definitely met some of the most amazing, and down-to-earth Faculty and Staff members that I had met in my entire life. As they say at Stetson, everyone was nice and SO friendly! From meeting my Director of Wellness and Recreation, to meeting our President, and Provost, everyone who I encountered was and are STILL nice to me. I definitely believe that my work environment has been a lasting impact on just how well I work, and why I enjoy working at Wellness and Recreation.

Finally, the academics are A-1. All of the individual schools are great with students, and a majority of the professors have a PhDs. In the Business school, not only have I had a great education, I have also enjoyed meeting Business Alumni. After going to the President's Dinner in October, I was introduced to an Alumni who is an executive at Disney World! Not only was I nervous about meeting her, I was also just excited to be in the presence of so many alumni, and supporters of Stetson. Even meeting my professors, who some are at the adjunct level, are phenomenal. I cannot wait to get to spend another two years here and enjoy this marvelous institution.

Stetson, to me, will always be on top. They are making great strides to be an even greater institution, and also help ensure a safe a fun, and great college atmosphere. Definitely a supporter of what all they want to promote, and excited for the future of Stetson University while I'm here. GO HATTERS!
