Why I chose my major

I chose the Social Entrepreneurship major in FACS because I wanted a major that allowed me to combine my love for non-profits and education. This major has four core classes structured around learning about social enterprise and the depth of social problems. This program also allows for the student to choose their own non-profit focus area, so I chose education access and advocacy. Social Entrepreneurship was the perfect major for me!

What I like most about FACS

The people! FACS is truly a community-based college. I would not be who I am today if I did not have the all the FACS faculty, staff and students supporting me along the way.

Post-graduation plans

I will be staying at UGA for another two years. Starting in the fall, I will be working on my master's in the College Student Affairs Administration Program. Go Dawgs!
