South Carolina Honors College

Jackson Stanton

Ask me about...  Internships, the Carolina Band, getting involved and business!

I am a senior from Clover, SC, majoring in Real Estate and Finance. My interests include music, history, math, and all things South Carolina. In the future, I hope to pursue my Ph.D. in Real Estate and Finance. I love working with prospective students and, in addition to being an Honors Ambassador, I also serve as a University Ambassador.

I love: I bleed garnet and black and you’ll hardly see me out of Carolina clothing! I love the University of South Carolina. It sounds cliché but it’s extremely true.

My weakness: I can’t say no. I love helping people so my first inclination is to say help when someone asks me to do something. This can be dangerous because it causes me to get over-worked and busy.

I’m motivated by: My older sisters. They’re people I look up to and really push what is expected of me by my parents. My sisters are also the people that I can look to for advice or call when I’m doubting myself.

My dream job: To be a Real Estate Professor conducting both quantitative market research and urban theory research. This is a great way for me to combine my love for history, numbers, and college!

My life goal: To make some kind of difference in the world. This doesn’t have to be a huge difference, just as long as I know I’ve impacted somebody’s life.

My advice for prospective students: Don’t be afraid about coming to college or getting involved. Engage in your classes and don’t be afraid of your professors. Make connections. Also, make the college decision on your own and pick what feels most like home.

My advice for current students: Live it up and cherish the short few years you have at UofSC. Senior year will come much faster than you think.

My favorite thing about the Honors College: I love the small class sizes and being able to get to know my professors personally. This allows me to make better connections and have professors that will know my name by the second week of classes.

My reason for choosing the SCHC: While I loved the culture of a big campus, I still wanted that intimate attention from professors that are offered at small colleges. By being in the Honors College, I am able to benefit from both the large university’s amenities as well as the special attention that accompanies small class sizes.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
