I chose Tampa because...

I chose Tampa because it had great facilities for class and housing, small class sizes, and is centered in the middle of beautiful downtown Tampa. However, I really loved the lifestyle I could have with 360 days of sunshine and that I have extended family a couple hours away.

Favorite Tampa class/professor...

My favorite course I have taken so far is macroeconomics. I never thought I would like economics but I found it interesting and it just seemed to clique. My favorite professor is Dr. Palmer who taught my writing course and she would constantly meet with me and give me advice. N

My favorite spots in Tampa are...

Around Tampa I love trying new food like Urban Cantina, Daily Eats, Fresh Kitchen, Green Lemon, and Jackson’s. I also love going to the beach by Clearwater and on rainy days going to the movie theater.

A few of my life goals are...

With an accounting major, I hope to one day become CPA certified and work for a private firm. Eventually, I would like to become partner or even start one of my own.
