Janice, '15Your Impact. Your Story:

At Southern, Janice has had the opportunity to be a student missionary in Tanzania, travel to Nicaragua on a mission trip, play a variety of sports with intramurals, develop leadership skills as Class of 2015 president, and build spiritually-based friendships with her classmates and teachers. She graduated this May with a degree in business administration and public relations.

Every single part of her Southern Experience was made possible because of people like you choosing to support the Southern Fund, and it’s made all the difference for Janice:

“Southern has been a great place for me to learn how to serve other people better. I truly appreciate those who give whatever they can to help support Southern, making it possible for me to enjoy these opportunities I otherwise would’ve never had!

“Thank you for giving to make your gift count for students like me!”
