Rebecca Burnett is a senior, Public Relations major from Mobile, Alabama. Rebecca chose Southern Miss because she loved the location and strong sense of community. "I came to Southern Miss because I like the location of it! Being from Mobile it's not too close, but still far enough away that I can be independent. I love not only the campus, but the people that make up the campus."
Rebecca is apart of Student Government Association and Public Relation Student Society of America. In PRSSA, Rebecca was Vice President of Recruitment and President. "Through my experiences on SGA, Tri Delta and PRSSA, Southern Miss had become my home away from home even though that sounds so cheesy!"
Rebecca was a Tri Delta legacy and also a legacy from another sorority. She felt pressure from both directions. "Ultimelty in the end I made the selfish decision to follow my heart and do what I wanted to do. Going into Pref Night, I had no idea what I wanted. On Skit Night, I felt silly. I cried to my friend at Tri Delta because I didn't know what to do. She was the one who told me that this time was the time for me to be selfish and do what I wanted. So right as I as I sat down at Tri Delta on Pref, I just knew. I had prayed for a sign, and right as they started singing Home, I knew that I found MY home. I cried my eyes out the entire time and told them this was where I belong!! God knew what he was doing when he placed Tri Delta in my life. I needed these girls more than they will ever know!
