Why I chose my major

I have always been an outgoing person and involved in my community. The housing industry allows you to connect with individuals on a personal level. This component of the industry perfectly suits who I am as a person and what I want for my future.

What I like most about FACS

My favorite thing about the College of Family and Consumer Sciences is that “family” comes first. The halls of Dawson welcome me with friendly faces and a sense of pride. I am fortunate to have a close relationship with all of my professors. The faculty and staff of FACS prioritize helping students achieve success

Post-graduation plans

I plan to continue my education at UGA by completing my master’s degree in Financial Planning, Housing, and Consumer Economics with an area of emphasis in Community Development.
