It's that time of year again!

Ahhh its the most, wonderful time of the year.. and nope I'm not talking about Christmas, its.. FOOTBALL SEASON!

I love this time of year when your cutest game day outfits come out, you grill out as you tailgate, and you hangout with your friends and family and watch a good ole football game!

In preparation for the South Alabama vs. Mississippi State game this Saturday I'd like to take it way back to the beginning of last year to my favorite game of the season!

My favorite football memory would have to be the first game of the season my sophomore year.  It was such a fun game because all of my friends and I dressed up and tailgated together outside of Ladd- Peebles Stadium, which is where our Jags play for home games.

After tailgating for a few hours and grilling out we went into the game and cheered on our football team with the rest of the South Alabama family.  Its a great experience to see all the students, faculty, and Jaguar fans coming together to cheer on our Jags!



Everyone was excited to hangout and cheer on our school together and all in all it was a great game!

It's all about being responsible!

One of the most exciting times in my life was graduating high school and taking the next big step into my life.. starting college.

Starting college is so new and exciting.  You're taking the next big step in your life to becoming a responsible adult.

The transition from high school to college can be very difficult for some students though.  Its hard to go from a lifestyle of structure and rules to complete freedom.

When I moved to college the hardest transition for my was managing my time.  It takes a lot of discipline to make yourself go to your classes and make yourself do your homework.  Especially if you have work to do and your friends are out having fun.

Once you are able to manage your time you will really excel not only in your classes, but you will be much more responsible and mature which are life skills you will use throughout the rest of your life!

All about Kirsten!

Hey y'all!

My name is Kirsten and I am a JagGuide here at the University of South Alabama. 

My blog this week is just a little introduction about who I am!

I am from Calera, Al.  Calera is located roughly about 30 minutes south of Birmingham so in case you haven't heard of Calera before (and a lot of people haven't) I am from the Birmingham area.

I am a junior here at the University of South Alabama and I am in Nursing School.  This fall is my first semester of being in the nursing program at South and so far I absolutely love it! 

Each week me and my fellow JagGuides will be posting blogs about our own personal experiences at South as well as providing information about our University.  Check out our blogs each week to read about what it is like being a student here at the University of South Alabama!

 

Lookin' official with our stethoscopes!
