USA football!

If you're from anywhere down south you know how big college football is down here. football season is probably one of the things I look forward to the most in the fall. Growing up here in Mobile, I remember being so excited when they announced USA was getting a football team. Now here we are six seasons later and its crazy to see how much the program grows and develops each year. Jag football games have such an amazing environment. From tailgating down to the final whistle there is so much energy and  everyone is just having a good time. That being said, my favorite USA football memory actually didn't happen at the stadium but at a viewing party. For last year's game against Tennessee  I went to a huge party to watch the game. It was so much fun. My friend cooked out, had music and had a bunch of people over. Although we didn't win the game, it was very close and we still had a blast. that game was also a big accomplishment for USA football because it proved we could stand our own against bigger teams. This week we have a HUGE game against Mississippi State and I can't wait for it. So excited to make more USA football memories! Go Jags!

Coming to College

There is a definite transition students must face when coming from high school to college. There are a number of changes that occur in a student's life. One of the biggest changes to me during this transition was the change in amount of responsibility. As a high school student I had a lot done for me and had a very planned out schedule. I went from being in school eight hours a day then having practice and workouts to just being in school 3 hours a day and having all of this free time.There are always events and activities so it is easy to slack off on school work. I had to learn to plan and do more things for myself. Not going to lie, it was pretty hard at first. I've always had procrastination issues but I learned to discipline myself and prioritize things. If I had one piece of advice for incoming students it would be to get a planner  to have things scheduled out. Time management is crucial in college.

about ME

Hey guys! I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Michael Erobu. I'm 20 years old and I was born and raised here in Mobile, Alabama. I am a junior here at the University of South Alabama and I am loving my time here. I am a marketing major here and I am enjoying learning more and more about the marketing side of business. I plan to head out to the west coast after college to work for an advertising firm. I highly recommend the University of South Alabama to anyone interested in type of business. The business program here is great, the professors are awesome and there are also plenty of professional business based groups to be apart of to help with networking for jobs.

One thing I love about USA is that they have so much to offer outside of just classes. Student life here at USA is amazing. There are always fun events going on and groups to be apart of. I myself am a member of a few organizations the Abeneefoo Kuo Honor Society, The professional sales and Marketing club, Jag productions, USA's men's club volleyball team, the House of Jags (The university's first fashion club),  I am also a Jag guide, and a Southbound Orientation leader.

A few of my hobbies include all kinds of sports (I love staying active), longboarding, going to concerts and music events, traveling, hanging out with friends, photography, and running my clothing line. I also love going to the beach and the fact that USA is so close is another pro. On campus you'll probably see me in the college of business building or at the rec center! If you guys have any questions feel free to ask! Looking forward to talking to you guys this year!, Go jags!
