National College Decision Day....

Hey there Baby Jags! National College Decision Day is slowly creeping up and before you know it the school you plan to spend the next 4 years of your life will be chosen. The day is May 1st, and it is created for students to officially choose which college or university they are planning to attend, for those who might not be aware.

Even though years has passed I can still remember the day I officially chose South to become my next home away. South had everything I could possibly want in a school and ultimately that is what drove me to my decision to attend here. South is not a very big school and for a girl like me who is easily distracted, that works in my favor. The endless opportunities that South offers pre and post graduation was another factor. The fact that I can be involved and still make good grades is a continuing factor and the list goes on and on and on.

Choosing South has to be one of the greatest decisions I could have made. Actually becoming a student here is just an af…

WE ARE....

"We Are South" is more than A slogan to anyone who is apart of the Jag family. There are so many things that we can say to finish this statement and it be true. We are Leaders! We are a Family! We are One! We are the Future! This list can go on and on because to each of us this means something different. To me, "We are South" means that together through everything we stand as one and continue to strive and to be successful. When South first launched "We are South" it meant more than those 3 words. It meant that we are capable of becoming something bigger than we were yesterday. It meant that the University of South Alabama is going to do whatever it takes to make sure we are prepared for what our future endeavors may consist of. So while "We are South" can mean something different to you,

...WHEN IT IS ALL SAID AND DONE, WE ARE JAG-TASTIC!

Being Great!

Hey there Baby Jags! Literally at this point you all are at the finish live! Congrats on completing yet another milestone in your life. Let this be the start of something brilliant and continue to strive and thrive and be great as we like to say.

This week I am going to cover what characteristics has helped me the most in being successful while in college. As cliché as this sound, being level headed, open minded and determined will definitely be the main reasons why I am as successful as I currently am.

I say level headed because with all the distractions college can have, I know my main goal is to get my degree and graduate and move forth to do better things. You have to know how to create a balance and maintain that balance and you will be alright. I say open minded because you can literally come to college thinking you have all your I's dotted and T's crossed but ultimately another path is being created for you and you don't even see that. So being able to accept it a…

Everybody loves learning about things they never knew so check out these 5 facts about South you might have or have not knew.
1. This one is for those who LOVE saving money like I know I do. Surrounding nail salons, restaurants, and even stores in the mall have discounts specially for South Alabama students. Depending on the company the deals can range from 10%-30%. Even the smallest bit help so make sure you keep your Jag card handy.

Future Chemical Engineer in the Making...

When I finally graduate South and move on to the person I was meant to be in society it will be because of the extraordinary help South staff provides for their students. Here at South, as an Engineering student, I cannot begin to tell you the amount of emails I receive about endless opportunities that are available. These opportunities entails internships, co-ops, summer programs, and the list goes on and on. Not only do they send out the information, if need be they actually help you complete the application and direct you to Career Services to help prep you for the interview. This ultimately helps my long term goal of being an Engineer because I am being granted the opportunity to gain experience before I even secure the degree.

Our Engineering department here at South, work around the clock to make sure when we leave here we have received all the tool necessary to be successful. Of course you have to be willing to meet them halfway but even so they go above and beyond to help us…

At this point you should pretty much either know for sure where you are going or at least narrowing down your searches. If you has not made an official decision yet, no worries, there are plenty of you. Just make sure you are at least aware of the next steps at the schools you are deciding between.

Everything at this point is a domino affect of getting ready for the Fall. If you are unaware of the two I listed that is completely fine. Just make sure you reach out to the university so you are more informed. Also, have you been check…

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 …
