Experience as A Member of The Fellows Society

Becoming a part f the Fellows Society was a great honor and forming friendships and associations with other scholars across the disciplines at FSU has enriched my time at this great institution. It has been encouraging and inspiring to speak to others who are on this journey along with me, and celebrating their successes along the way has provided the perseverance I need to continue until completion.
