Teacher Jennifer Brickey’s class first read Mahalia Mouse Goes to College by John Lithgow, which prepared them to learn about different majors and career choices including criminology, biology, hospitality, business and education. The students then toured the N. Tamiami Trail campus grounds and enjoyed lunch in the courtyard with a special appearance by Rocky D. Bull, USFSM’s mascot.
