I fell in love with the vibrant city and the absolute beautiful campus. I love being so close to the beach and yet next to downtown! Besides the location, UT has an excellent business college and that was ultimately the deciding factor for me.
My favorite spots in Tampa are Amalie Arena, where I had my first internship with the Tampa Bay Lightning, and Plant Park where I can do my homework on a hammock between palm trees.
My favorite professor is Dr. Chris Gurrie. He is a Speech professor and always goes above and beyond in and outside of the classroom for his students. I loved him as a professor because he created a class culture that every single person could relate to, making the semester not just educational, but extremely fun.
A few of my life goals are to grow both professionally and personally through academic success and overall leadership development. I love being involved all across campus, and I want to use the leadership skills that I have gained from my experience at UT in my future career.
