An orientation leader and Bulls Business Community mentor, Cassandra Coolidge has made giving back to USF a habit. As an incoming freshman from a town of just 5,500, Coolidge knew no one at USF until she moved into the BBC, an invitation-only program for high achieving incoming students. She discovered that USF has a strong sense of community – and she has since worked hard to pass a similar community spirit on to students who have followed.
As an orientation team leader, she connected with 150 students, answering their questions and calming their first-year jitters. Coolidge worked in a similar capacity in the BBC during her sophomore year. She mentored first-year students and shared her experiences with them.
She has actively sought out ways to represent and serve her fellow students, taking on leadership roles in the Student Affairs Circle of Student Advisors and Gamma Phi Beta sorority. Coolidge is also a USF Ambassador. She has done s Stampede of Service and Relay for Life, too.
Coolidge has maintained a 3.96 grade point avereage and is a member of Beta Gamma Sigma honor society. She has been accepted into several prestigious law schools and will soon decide which one will be her new home for the next several years.
