Hello there, everyone!
I should start by introducing myself. My name is Stephanie Ross and I am an incoming student at SCO (Class of 2020!...How cool is that?!). For my undergraduate years, I attended the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida where I graduated with a degree in Health Sciences. My husband and I (we just got married a few weeks ago :)) moved to Memphis from Sarasota, FL, last week. It's been quite the transition, yet such an exciting new journey for us! We actually moved into a 1-bedroom loft apartment at the Bristol on Union which is right across the street from SCO's campus and his new job at Methodist University Hospital. We also have a view of Downtown Memphis! It's perfect!!! Though fall semester has not officially begun yet, I began training for my work-study position in the SCO library and the location of our apartment allows me to walk each day- It's quick and we save money on gas!
One thing that absolutely boggles my mind is how quickly time has passed. The application process, taking the OAT, the interview process, all of it- was already 1 year ago! Since that time, I have attended the SCO Housing Fair, met several of my new classmates, got my White Coat measurement, attended a Memphis Grizzlies game and eaten at several BBQ places (Central BBQ is my favorite, so far...).
I am already falling in love with this city and cannot wait for my upcoming years at SCO, experiencing all that Memphis and SCO has to offer!
Stay Tuned... in just 12 short days is New Student Orientation :)
Talk to you soon,
