Students stride confidently across campus, aware of destination and shortest route. They return to residence halls where order and convenience rule. And on weekends they attend sporting or other campus events where unified cheers for ‘Nole performers is magically ignited.
It’s the picture of campus life, and it’s partly the result of students like Carolina Orrego, a junior studying political science, who continues to contribute her time to improving the student experience at FSU.
Most recently, she was an orientation leader, helping new students enter the stream of campus life. She has been the treasurer and hall ambassador for Smith Hall, and was recognized by the National Residence Hall Honorary as Outstanding Sophomore Leader of the Year. As a Lady Spirithunter, she does those little things—from painting faces to volunteering at the Dance Marathon—that transform many campus events into memorable experiences for the community.
Carolina is also a bright star within the classroom, making the President’s list (earning a 4.0 GPA) or Dean’s list in the past three semesters. Carolina will be inducted into the National Society of Collegiate Scholars in fall ’05.
It’s no wonder Carolina contributes to the supportive culture at the University—it was a major reason she chose to enroll here: “When I first came, everyone was very welcoming. It seemed like people were happy that I was planning to attend this university.”
Continuing in the welcoming mode is one of Carolina’s post-graduation plans. She hopes to own a restaurant where she can nourish people’s spirits.
