With finals coming up, my first thought is, "Yes, I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!" This semester has been filled with a lot of hard work towards my classes along with a lot of great memories with friends as well. With my professors providing us with study material ahead of time, I feel a little at ease about taking exams so hopefully studying won't be too stressful. Even though final exam week will consist of lots of coffee along with long nights and early mornings, it'll be all worth it! I'm willing to do whatever it takes to finish the semester out strong so I can enjoy the summer break back in my hometown!

One of the main questions that we were asked as kids was, "What would you like to be when you grow up?" Many of us dreamed of being lawyers, doctors, teachers, and professional sport players. As we grow older and discover our passions, our dreams often start to become clearer. As a Information Technology major and Criminal Justice minor here at the University, my aspiration is to become a Computer Forensics Specialist. Computer Forensic involves investigating, gathering and analyzing digital evidence from electronic devices. Once data is recovered, the information gathered would be used for a court trial. South Alabama has helped me strive towards my goal by offering a Digital Forensics focus track that involves courses where I will be able to gain real world experiences by tackling hacking problems that involves recovering deleted data. Being able to get any kind of experience in your field of interest is amazing because it can potentially set you above other candidates that have the same career goals. Not only does South have things to offer you that will help in your career field, but it offers opportunities that will help with your personal growth as well! Go Jags!

If I was given the opportunity of a do-over here at the University it would be to get more involved on campus as a freshman. I didn't step out of my comfort zone at all during my freshmen year.If I wasn't preparing for exams, I spent majority of my time with high school friends. We took road trips, had girls night out, and studied together which was all fun but at the same time I wish I would've branched out and made my freshman year more productive. I had a great first year but it should have involved more of participating in campus activities and joining organizations.I think if you get the ball rolling your first year, you'll have more opportunities presented to you versus getting involved later on during college. A little advice would be don't be afraid to branch out and try new things. There's nothing wrong with hanging with old friends and doing old routines, just don't get comfortable. It's always great to do things that will better yourself in the long run. Get out and make things happen!

My favorite part about campus life during the spring time has to be our softball games. Because of my hectic schedule, I can never enjoy the games during the week but I look forward to attending them on the weekends.Having the wind blow in your hair and eating a ice cream cone while watching the game is very peaceful. It's always fun to grab a few of your friends to attend the game but it can also be fun even if you attend the game by yourself. You'll end up finding someone that you know in the crowd or become friends with a stranger because we are all there for one reason and that's to cheer on our Jags!
