Alrighty. So I am Alexis. I am your recruiter. So anything you need, I
am your point of contact. Kind of tell me about
yourself, maybe what you’re potentially wanting to study. As far as learning goes? ALEXIS: Yep. I love learning. ALEXIS: [LAUGHS] MARIAH: But I tend to
be a visual learner. ALEXIS: OK. I’m super adventurous
and love fun. ALEXIS: Yeah, so with
you being adventurous, so many opportunities
here at Stetson. So if this is the
place that you do come, I would recommend
getting involved, whether it be a
club or organization or fraternities and sororities. MARIAH: I don’t exactly
know what sorority and fraternity are. ALEXIS: OK, it’s an
organization made up of Greek letters or whatnot. And you do community service. MOM: OK. I went to a large university– Yes ma’am. –and I was in a sorority. And we had a philanthropy. But that was in name only. It was all about party. You know, I went through some– some rough times in college
because of my wildness. And I see some of
that in Mariah. And I really don’t want her
to have to go through some of what I went through– driving when I was
drunk and, you know, waking up in the car parked
weird on the lawn, passed out, taking drugs and driving
across town at 3 o’clock in the morning. I mean– you know, I could have
died so many different ways when I was in college. And by God’s grace, I came
out of it, and He saved me. And I live a different life now. But to me, the better
thing would be for her not to have to experience all of
the junk that I experienced. So is it different
here at Stetson? ALEXIS: Your mom is right. That is what it was in the past. But in the present
day and time, it is all about business networking
and to be a part of something bigger than myself. So, like they
stated on the tour– MARIAH: What happened
to her is in her eyes going to happen to me too. But I know that it doesn’t
have to be that way. Thank. You. Maybe she sees a way to,
like, rewrite her past or redo some things through me. That puts a lot
of pressure on me. And I feel like it’s fair.
