Like is an Understatement...

Hey there Baby Jags! First off I want to say Happy Valentine's Day! Hopefully, unlike me, you actually have plans for this marvelous day. I hope you all are enjoying your last couple months of being in high school. As you can see from my title I am going to express my biggest love about South Alabama.

There are many things that you can love about South from the curriculum, to the layout, to the endless career opportunities, etc, etc etc...but the biggest thing I love about South has to do with the fact that South literally gives you the "home away from home" feeling. While that might sound so cliché it is very much a true feeling. The moment I stepped on South campus I knew this is where I belonged. Everyone is so friendly and open and willing to help you with whatever it is you need help with and you cannot get that everywhere. From the staff to students everyone is so open to being there with you every step of the way of your college career and I am so for that. I can …

Top 3 Tips!

Hey there Baby Jags!

Yes, searching for a college that is perfect for you can be a little overwhelming with how many college and universities exist but its not impossible. I have 3 tips that can help you in narrowing down your choices on schools you wish to further your education at.

1.) My very first tip is choosing a school that has an amazing department with your MAJOR. I find this extremely crucial because if you choose a school for any other reason and haven't put much thought into the academic side you are kind of stuck. I originally was between two majors when I came to South, Psychology and Engineering but South was perfect because both my majors are a top major here. I knew I could become more in either field I ended up choosing if I came here. I look at it as if this school has an amazing program in which your interested in that means that have ample amount of opportunities for you to be involved both within and outside of the college or the university. So my first tip is…

A Day At USA!

Hey there baby Jags! Long time and no see! At this point, you can practically consider your Senior year over! These next few weeks are going to fly by so fast you are not going to know what happened! I am not saying that to scare you, but I am letting you know what you need to do in order to be prepared for what is coming next.

I always advise students to visit your school before you choose rather or not that is the school you want to attend. Being on campus helps you envision what it will be like to be a student at that college and/or university.

With that being said if you have not had a chance to visit South Alabama I advise you all to pick a day that works best for you and to come hang out with the Jags! We now have a new event called "A Day at USA" where it is like a normal tour at South but you are able to have a special request for what you will like to see or do while you are here. This can include seeing inside a specific building that you probably will not see on…

What Keeps Me Going, When I Wanna Stop....

We are in that final stretch here at the University of South Alabama and around this time is when a lot of college students just want to throw in the towel and give up but of course if you want to be great that is never the best option.






One main thing that keeps me going and motivated around the end of every semester is my family. I talk to my mom literally all day, every day and that all happened when I came to college. To say my mom is my best friend is truly an understatement. To know that she is continuously rooting me on even over 900 miles away, why would I continue to quit and give up? And far beyond that my younger siblings. They accept me flaws and all and for that reason I cannot just stop. I have to continue to make them proud to be their big sister and continue setting the path.

So on days when I am really out of it, I just Facetime back home, have my cry and my mom gives me her famous speech and that alone is enough to continue to push me.

As always I hope you all enjoy…

Thankful! Grateful! Blessed!

As we approach my favorite time of the year, *cough Thanksgiving cough* I have to express what I am most thankful here at South. While there are many things to be grateful here at the University of South Alabama, I have to say that I am truly thankful for the professors and staff who do everything possible to make sure we succeed here at the University.





One thing that set our professors aside from many other professors is their willingness to step outside of the time to make sure you succeed. I have had numerous professors meet me outside office hours because the time conflicted with other things going on but to them my education meant something and for that I am forever grateful.

I am grateful for South to continue to bring research opportunities to us. Being an engineer, I receive countless emails regarding co-ops and internships. It is honestly so many to choose from that I match with that its honestly hard to choose one. I am not sure what other schools present that opportunity to…

Cause We Are Sisters....We Stand Together!

At the University of South Alabama I am apart of many organizations and while I can be bias and say they are all my favorite, I would have to say honestly my favorite is WOX (Women Of Excellence). I was inducted in this wonderful organization Spring'17 and I can honestly say I am forever thankful. This is an organization whose purpose is to solely create a sisterhood among women on the collegiate level. We help push each other to be a better person than they were the day before. When you feel as if you are alone you have a group of sisters who are waiting for you to ask for help. For these reasons alone, I truly admire WOX. We do more than just push each other. We give back to our community by offering our service at nearby corporations in Mobile. A couple of community service projects includes, volunteering at Feeding the Gulf Coast, The Boys and Girls club, creating care packages for terminally ill children at USA's Women and Children hospital, and the list goes on and on. …

College and Chill'

I know by my title you all are probably thinking what is she talking about? I can tell you all now that college is not all about work, work, work. You have plenty, and I do mean plenty, of free time while you are in school. The problem is most students do not know how to use that free time. In this blog I am going to tell you how I spend my time as a college student outside of the classroom.


If I am not in class I am either at work, or at some type of event or meeting with my organizations. GET INVOLVED MY BABY JAGS! When you come to college, rather that be here at South or another university, I say at least join one organization your freshman year. Of course you can join more, but I say one because you want to get the feel of college before you just join everything and realize you bit off more than you could chew. Once you get a hang of stuff and realize you want to be apart of more than go ahead and join! Just to mention some organizations I am apart of is SWE (Society of Women Engi…
