When speaking of outstanding women who attend USFSP, it’s a no brainer to include Alicia Tennell, this week’s Campus Celebrity. Tennell is heavily involved which is reflected through her resume and only a first year student at USFSP. So say hello to Alicia!
What’s your major?
Marketing Major with a minor in International Business and Management
What do you plan to do with your degree?
I plan to use my degree to be an asset in the corporate business world and manage international affairs while being afforded the opportunity to travel the world.
When did you realize that your major was right for you?
I realized my major was right for me when I began competing in the international marketing club DECA, and realized that I had a passion and talent for professional sales, networking, and having a good time with like-minded business people.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years I see myself with an established career, hopefully having received my MBA, living in Atlanta, and married to George Clooney.
What are you involved in on campus?
On campus I’m a pledge in the Delta Sigma Pi fraternity, VP of Professional Activities of the USFSP marketing club, and Deputy of University Relations for our Student Government Association. I’m also President of the academic honor society of the Delta Epsilon Iota chapter at USFSP and work at our College of Business and library on campus.
What made you choose USFSP?
I chose USFSP because it was the most affordable! It was also close enough but far enough away from home, and I appreciated the convenient location and scenery of our campus. We’re right downtown and by the bay. You can’t get any better than that.
What is your favorite thing about being a student at USFSP?
My favorite thing about being a student at USFSP is having a close-knit community at the university level. It honestly isn’t for everyone, but I appreciate where I am.
What advice do you have for incoming freshman?
Dear Incoming Freshman, GET. INVOLVED. It’s so easy to seclude to a routine and miss out on great opportunities on campus. It’s so very important to apply yourself and develop your resume through being a part of organizations on campus. Your first semester you might not want to take on a whole lot, but definitely try at least a couple. They’ll pay off in the end and it’s a great way to make new friends!
